Event Description:
FLEX # 106
No one likes paying taxes and let’s face it—a lot of that money is spent on things of dubious value. The National Aeronautics & Space Administration (NASA), however, is one of the most cost-effective and productive agencies ever created. The Hubble Space Telescope, for example, cost a measly one billion dollars. The scientific advances and technological processes arising from that single project have paid enormous dividends over the three decades since its construction. NASA’s annual budget is a paltry $23 billion, an amount of money our government will spend to build just two aircraft carriers. This workshop will examine how and why NASA was formed, its mission, its impact on both science and industry, and how it plans to meet the challenges of the future.
