Topic
An Insiders View of the Kennedy Space Center Manned Launch Programs 

Program: Rick worked for NASA at Kennedy Space Center from 1968 until 1981. During this time he held increasingly responsible positions in both the Apollo and Shuttle Programs. Beginning in 1968, he was a Launch Operations Flight Test Engineer responsible for propulsion and mechanical systems on the first stage of the Saturn V Launch Vehicle. The Saturn V successfully launched each manned Apollo mission to the moon and also, each Skylab program. He developed the math models for the S-1B/1C launch vehicle simulators used for training other members of the launch team. 

During the Space Shuttle program, he was the lead main propulsion system engineer for launch and landing operations, representing Kennedy Space Center during design and development of the Space Shuttle. He also led the development of the operational procedures for the launch and recovery systems for the Shuttle’s main propulsion systems. Throughout the transition to the Space Shuttle, he was responsible for developing schedule initiatives to enable decreasing the Space Shuttle processing times to meet the operational and economic goals of the program. He also organized the first worldwide Space Shuttle user conference.

This is a delightful and informative program presented by our own Spruce Creek resident. Everyone is invited, please join us. If you cannot make the dinner you are welcome to come at 7:30 to hear the presentation.
