Rockets away! To Mars and beyond! Nuclear-powered space ships, perhaps like the one in “2001: A Space Odyssey”, may be in our near future. However, LANL was developing the reactors starting in the 1950s. What were the successes and what happened to the program?
Come hear LANL Historian Allan B. Carr describe the rise and fall of Project Rover at this month’s Military Order of World Wars meeting Tuesday, May 15. In addition to Carr, Commander in Chief David Gibson and his wife Diane will be attending.
Note change in location. The meeting will be held in the dining room of American Legion Post 90 at 1325 Trinity Dr., down behind Pasta Paradiso. Enter through the west side door. The meeting begins with a social period at 6 p.m., followed by a brief business meeting, dinner at 6:25 p.m. and the presentation at about 7:15 p.m. The Military Order of the World Wars dinner meetings are open to interested citizens for the dinner and program with RSVP, or the program only at no cost.
