About this Event

On Friday, January 24th 2019, join the desk chair audience as Loren Shriver takes us into space. Shriver will narrate a 20-minute video which will show a typical mission sequence for a Space Shuttle mission, and the video will also show how his team deployed the Hubble Space Telescope, which is still flying and active today. The discussion will end with an opportunity for questions from attendees.

Loren Shriver (Colonel, USAF Retired), began his professional career at the U.S. Air Force Academy Prep School in 1962, and spent 49 years in four distinct career segments. During his early Air Force career he went to graduate school, completed Air Force Pilot Training, served as an Instructor Pilot, Fighter Pilot in Viet Nam/Thailand, (Viet Nam Veteran), completed Air Force Test Pilot School and flew several aircraft test projects including the F-15. In 1978, he was selected by NASA to become a Space Shuttle Pilot Astronaut and flew three Space Shuttle Missions, STS 51-C in 1985, STS 31 in 1990, and STS 46 in 1992.

In 1993, he retired from the Air Force, completed his service as an Astronaut, and entered Civil Service with NASA. He held Operations Management positions in the Space Shuttle Program Office and was Deputy Center Director for Launch and Payload Processing at the Kennedy Space Center. In 2000, he retired from NASA, and worked for United Space Alliance, as Vice President and Deputy Space Shuttle Program Manager, and later as Vice President of Engineering and Integration, and Chief Technology Officer. In February of 2011, Loren retired again (fully this time) as the Space Shuttle Program ended.
