Community Conversation

Posted on 17th May 2013 at 16:23

This week’s Community Conversation lecture is being moved to Friday, and will feature an actual “rocket scientist” as today’s speaker. 1956 R. A. Long graduate and LCC alum Paul Laufman has been involved in the U. S. space program since its early days, working as a project engineer on major defense and manned space programs, helping to develop rocket propulsion systems. Credits include the Apollo moon landings and the Space Shuttles. In the mid-90’s, he was a co-founder of United Paradyne Corporation, which now provides propellants and pressurants for space missions and satellite launches around the world. Today’s talk is titled “Space Policy and its Entrepreneurial Impact in the Pacific Northwest,” and will start at noon. The location has also been moved, with this week’s lecture being held in the Heritage Room, on the first floor of the LCC Administration Building. Admission is free.
