OCC Planetarium
Thursday, Dec 8, 2022 at 7:00 PM (PT)

In our new monthly speaker series, special guests bring the most relevant topics in space science and astronomy to the Planetarium.

Katrina Carter-Journet has studied gravitational-wave astrophysics at the LIGO Livingston-Observatory, transitioned her interest to human space exploration by supporting various projects and programs at NASA, contributed to Reliability and Maintainability analyses for the Space Shuttle Program, Probabilistic Risk Assessments for the International Space Station, supported R&M for new Extravehicular Mobility Unit designs for future missions back to the moon and beyond, and moved to the commercial aerospace industry to work as an Engineering Specialist at Virgin Galactic. Katrina currently works supporting lunar projects and Orbital Reef at Blue Origin.

Katrina's talk will recap the contributions of the Space Shuttle Program and the International Space Station, her experience navigating the public and private aerospace industries, the future of exploration from the NASA Artemis program to Commercial Space, how private companies and government agencies work together to achieve their goals, and discuss how students today can be apart of this new phase of space exploration.

Followed by a Q&A session. Starts 7 p.m.
