    Title: The Evolution of Stealth Technology
    Presenter: Mike Harrison, Boeing Mechanical/Structural Engineer
    Abstract: Stealth technology as we know it, evolved in a shroud of secrecy from a need to sneak past the enemies defenses in the early 1950s to today's requirements to….. well, still sneak past the enemies defenses! Stealth has become more than just radar cross-section reduction but the history of how stealth evolved requires looking past what the politicians, industry leaders and trade journals claim, pronounce and speculate. This is a look at the people, companies, airplanes, and defenses that shaped this journey.

    Date & Time: Thursday, April 29, 2021: 6:30 PM CT
    Title: AIAA at the St. Louis Challenger Learning Center
    Abstract: Join the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) - St. Louis for an evening to experience a virtual space mission simulation with the Challenger Learning Center. Program participants will take on the role of Mission Controllers tasked with monitoring the operations of a small Mars outpost crew. The team must work together to track, program, and land a rover on the surface to aid the team. As the Mars outpost crew journeys out onto the surface, the Mission Controllers will need to guide them as they face challenges in order to complete the mission.

    *Virtual Zoom Meeting info will be sent after RSVP
