    Moon Landing 50 Years Later: How NASA Glenn Rocked the Mission
    In 1941 ground was broken in Cleveland, Ohio, to create the facility now known as The NASA Glenn Research Center at Lewis Field. We’re talking years before NASA was even established! For this Cleveland Stories session, Senior Aerospace Engineer Craig Williams will explain the history of the NASA Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, the advances of their research, development of launch vehicles, the missions they flew, and more!

    Craig H. Williams Bio

    Craig H. Williams is an Aerospace Engineer experienced in civilian and military engineering design and project management of space launch vehicles, advanced space propulsion, space power systems, and related aerospace systems analyses. Currently a Senior Aerospace Engineer in the Propulsion Division, heeads NASA’s support of Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s Experimental Spaceplane program to enable operationally efficient, shorter schedule, and lower cost access to low Earth orbit. Craig holds an MS in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Michigan, a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Cornell University and an Ohio PE license in Mechanical Engineering.

    The goal of the Cleveland Stories Dinner Party is to bring to life some of the fun, interesting stories about Cleveland’s past – from sports, to rock ‘n roll, to Millionaire’s Row, — the series will focus on tidbits from Cleveland’s past that will really thrill the audience. The Music Box is presenting this series in partnership with the Western Reserve Historical Society’s new Cleveland History Center. We think the Cleveland History Center is one of the most important museums in Cleveland. An unknown gem that Clevelanders should know more about, and support. It is the only museum in Cleveland dedicated to preserving and documenting the history of Cleveland. The Cleveland History Center includes two mansions, the Crawford Auto Aviation Museum, Chisholm Halle Costume Wing, Research Library, Kidzibits Hands-On Gallery, rotating exhibitions, and the Euclid Beach Park Grand Carousel.
