The topic for this month is "The Science of Apollo: Travel Without GPS, Velcro, or Cruise Control" by Dr. Robert J. Meier.

Video meeting:

Bring your deepest tech questions. You will not stump Dr. Meier.

The mission of landing a man on the moon required inventing myriad technologies that were all flown and were spun off to the civilian sector as well. Come learn:

  • how scientists debunk the myth of the Fake Moon Landing.
  • technologies used today

Fifty years ago, mankind did the impossible. They traveled a quarter million miles to the Moon without GPS. Microelectronics, laser precision, and cruise control are now the basis of major US industries for the last few decades. Each was the solution to a problem unresearched before Apollo.

Biography: AA9AU, Dr. Robert Meier, a professor of Electrical Engineering and former researcher for Ames Research Center, will examine the science used to get man to the moon and technology we use every day that came about from those missions.
