Please join us this month when Alice Bowman will talk to us about her New Horizon's probe passing by Ultima Thule, and what it took to get there.

Alice Bowman is the Mission Operations Manager of the New Horizons mission to Pluto, Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory. Aka "Space MOM".

The last time Alice spoke to our group, her space craft, after 9 years of travel, had accomplished its goal of closer exploration of Pluto. Clearly, at that time she had finished her objective, but like many explorers Alice and her crew sought to do more.

Launched on January 19th, 2006 the probe continues to travel on to the edges of our universe. It is only the fifth space probe to achieve the escape velocity needed to leave the Solar System and has successfully maneuvered to pass another Kuiper Belt object in the Plutonian System known as 2014 MU69 or "Ultima Thule".

We appreciate our strong relationship with the AIAA that allows us to share another excellent speaker.

For any changes or questions regarding your reservations, please call or email our Executive Secretary, Nilha Saied at 716-634-1427 or nilha@Verizon.net.

Larry Cobado
88th President, Aero Club of Buffalo
