The Explorer’s Journey Live – 10-26-14

Sunday  – October 26, 2014 @ 12:30 pm – 3:30 pm – Q&A till 4:00 pm regional high school students will be attending this event.  All are welcome to WATCH from the or  1:00 pm to 3:30 pm

The Explorer’s Journey shares the experiences of the brightest minds in science that help push the boundaries of the world we think we know. Join these explorers as they reveal their discoveries from the farthest depths of the ocean, land, and the cosmos. We hope to expand the curiosity of young minds through first hand experiences, and to challenge emerging explorers’ goals to pursue STEM careers that help them envision journeys that can turn science fiction into science fact.

Meet speaker A. Dorian Challoner, founder of Inertial Wave, Systems Engineer

SparSpaceArmOn October 26th, Youth@Bruce Talks “The Explorer’s Journey – Pushing Boundaries” regional students will have the opportunity to meet speaker A. Dorian Challoner, founder of Inertial Wave, Systems Engineer. He is an expert with four decades of experience in the design and development of space robotics and spacecraft guidance, navigation and control systems. He has made significant contributions to the control system architecture, design and analysis of the Communications Technology Satellite, Shuttle Remote Manipulator and Boeing satellites since 1979. He holds 44 patents related to satellite attitude dynamics and control, and to inertial micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS). Among these are key patents related to the Boeing disc resonator gyroscope. Dorian has also conducted research in the field of fluid dynamics for spinning satellites and inertial MEMS. He was chief scientist for the leading DARPA program in that field and continues to provide consulting through Inertial Wave.
