Meeting and Talk: Enterprise (the Myth of the Sixth Shuttle) / Yerkes

At the Warren Astronomical Society's Cranbrook meetings, we spend the first hour or so of the meeting on club business and observing reports, then have two presentations, one short and one full-length.

On Monday, October 7th, Program Chair Diane Hall returns to the Manned Spaceflight soapbox with this look at the "shuttle" Enterprise.  She'll cover what a shuttle is and is not and look at the missions carried out by this high-tech glider before its retirement to a string of museums.

For our short talk this evening we have the indefatigable Ken Bertin, who has just returned from a visit to Yerkes and wants to spread the word about the largest refractor ever built.

If you would like to present either a short talk (10-15 minutes) or a full-length talk (45-60 minutes) at a future meeting, please email Diane Hall at [masked].

    The Institute of Science. There are lots of signs. Just enter from Woodward and don't turn until the road dead-ends, then turn left. We meet in the auditorium downstairs.
