The New Horizon Mission to Pluto – Presentation by Alice Bowman, NASA

The AIAA Adelaide Section will be hosting a presentation by Alice Bowman titled ‘The New Horizons Mission to Pluto’.

Alice always wanted a career that was exciting, technically challenging “and not the same day in and day out.” She certainly found it – leading the operations team that made history by “flying” the first spacecraft to Pluto. This presentation will provide fascinating insights as Alice describes her journey, from its beginnings as a child with a passion for space, through to her role as mission operations manager where she led the team controlling NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft on its voyage to Pluto and beyond.

The presentation will be held at 6:15pm (for a 6:30pm start) on Thursday 17 March 2016 at Scott Theatre, University of Adelaide North Terrace campus.
