Techbrick FLL4829 did an online call with Lt. Col. Kelly Latimer (ret) tonight. Col. Latimer has a long and accomplished career. She is now a pilot for Virgin Galactic and the lead pilot for Virgin Orbit. She spent about 30 minutes with our students answering their questions and then listened to their project idea and had some great comments. Big thank you to Stan Childs, good friend of TechBrick Robotics for making this possible and the Ground Floor in Havre de Grace, MD, for providing a conference room. Given the disproportionate number of astronauts and FLL teams we are sharing this for the benefit of all Into Orbit teams.
