Worden Looks Ahead

Keynote Speech by Dr. S. Pete Worden at AIAA Space 2006

“Next month we will observe the 49th anniversary of the first Earth-orbiting satellite. But as much as we can take pride in the accomplishments of the past five decades, the dawn of the true space age lies ahead of us. Sooner than we may think people will be able to look up, and with the aid of a telescope see the glimmering lights of a research station on the lunar surface. At about this time astronauts will be readying spaceships for humans’ first voyages to Mars and Near-earth Asteroids. This second giant leap for mankind begins now.”
