NASA History: 60 Years of Discovery

Join us for our 1st Program in our Space Program Series: Eclipse 2024 with NASA Ambassador Jim Porter-- to discover the rich heritage of NASA space exploration and where the newest missions will be taking us in the future.

For the past 60 years, NASA has been discovering the mysteries of outer space using a wide array of scientific missions from the manned space flights of the early 1960’s through the latest robotic laboratories sent to Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and beyond.  Beginning with the earliest Mercury missions, the history of space exploration is filled with remarkable discoveries and fascinating human drama, some of which originate right here in the Rochester, NY.  

Jim Porter has worked as an aerospace engineer in several states, including Jet Propulsion Laboratories in Pasadena, CA. His popular presentations are engaging and easy to listen to for all levels.
