SJAA August General Meeting

Marian Chuang - August 20

David Smith

Our speaker for the August 20 general meeting will be Marian Chuang, systems engineer specialist for Lockheed Martin. She was involved in great projects such as Gravity Probe-B (Einstein's Theory of Relativity experiment) with Stanford University and SIRTF (Space Infrared Telescope Facility), which is now called Spitzer Space Telescope. Marian's topic is her current project: advanced planning to take us back to the Moon, and on to Mars. This involves the field of bioastronautics, which addresses the physiological effects of space flight, including microgravity, and the psychological considerations of long duration space missions.
