Tour of SpaceX

On Thursday April 27th, 20 members of Squadron 51 attended a tour of SpaceX facilities in Hawthorne, California. Two back-to-back tours with groups of 10 were hosted by George Sondeker who is a TESS Mission Manager at SpaceX. During the tour, our members were able to see the control room, Falcon 9 rocket booster that returned safely to earth, Dragon Capsule, and 3-D printer that manufactures several of their custom metal parts. George also attended our May 4th composite meeting as a special guest speaker to discuss his background in the U.S. Air Force, education and career in a S.T.E.M. field. A special thank you to Second Lieutenant Mark Evans for organizing the tour and guest speaker.
