History is happening in the Redmond area and we welcome you to our meeting. The Redmond Historical Society will meet on Saturday, October 13, 2012, 10:30 to noon at the Old Redmond Schoolhouse Community Center, 16600 NE 80 Street, Redmond, WA. Redmond is home to a rocket manufacturer. Originally known as Rocket Research Company, Aerojet-Redmond is located on the hill above the Sixty Acre soccer fields, just off Willows Road. Rocket Research Company designed and manufactured the Viking Lander engines that originally landed two spacecraft on the Martian surface in 1976. More recently, Aerojet redesigned and manufactured the Mars Science Laboratory Lander engines that delivered the rover Curiosity to the Martian surface on August 5, 2012. Ms. Olwen Morgan, Associate Development Engineer for Rocket Research Company, and now Business Development Manager for Aerojet, will discuss the history of Rocket Research Company and its contribution to the space industry, especially Mars exploration. Don’t miss this meeting. To receive the monthly newsletter, contact the Society office at 425-885-2919, or email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
