Summary of May 4, 2019 Meeting with Herb Baker

We had a great May 4th meeting at the Barbara Bush Library. Herb Baker came and shared highlights of his 40+ year career at NASA. It was fascinating to hear first hand about how the events of the post-Apollo and Shuttle era unfolded. And before he started at NASA, he worked for the TV networks helping with logistics coverage of the Apollo program.



As a token of Thanks, the NSS North Houston Space Society presented Herb Baker with a EcoSphere. Unlike the shrimp who are trapped in their self-contained world, we have people like Herb Baker to help us break free into the universe.

Nathan Price also hosted a conversation on “Why Space?” focusing on how space improves our vision of the earth, the earth within the universe and of our place in the universe. “We go to the moon not because of what we will do to the moon. We go to the moon because of what the moon will do to us.”

We had 14 people present at the meeting. (Which is great considering that this meeting was at a different place and a different time than the ones in the past.)

Our next meeting will be a Barbara Bush Library, Saturday, June 1, 2019 at 3PM.
