A Personal Perspective on the Space Race

How did our country managed to develop from a largely agrarian society at the end of the 19th Century to a competitive power in space by the mid-20th Century? We’ll talk this hour with Dr. David Peters, McDonnell Douglas Professor of Mechanical, Aerospace and Structural Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis. He’ll deliver the lecture “Boomers, Bloomers and Zoomers: A personal perspective on the space race” at UTA this evening.
