NASA Hosts Welsh Trade Mission June 23, NASA LaRC
"Former astronaut Scott Horowitz will introduce Welsh business and business development representatives to various NASA technologies during a visit of approximately 50 members of the International Business Wales (IBW) group to NASA's Langley Research Center on Tuesday, June 23. Horowitz, an IBW partner, will escort the Welsh delegation as they participate in a series of briefings about NASA Langley partnership, procurement, and current research and development opportunities. The visitors will also explore wind tunnels, structural test facilities and exploration hardware at Langley."
"It began about six months ago.Fraser contacted with Scott Horowitz, a former NASA astronaut and now an agency contractor and Welsh consultant. There were Welsh companies doing business with aerospace and defense firms. How could that happen more frequently in the U.S.? "I thought about NASA headquarters," Horowitz said, "and realized that wasn't the answer. And then I thought about Langley. It's close by (Washington). NASA has 10 agencies. Langley is sort of a conglomerate of what they do across NASA."
