Reach for the Stars with special guest Gwynne Allan

About this Event

This year sees us celebrating 50yrs since man made it to the moon, today is your opportunity to meet the women that helped to continue that space adventure, Gwynne Allen. Starting her NASA career in 1976 as a Thermal Dynamics Technician designing and fabricating MLI spacecraft heat shields. 

At the time building and testing spacecraft was a man's domain and women were not exactly welcomed.  Her persistence and hard work paid off and eventually she became a specialist and the first women to give 'GO' for launch at the Kennedy Space Centre.  Her 14 year career with NASA was varied and always exciting.  As she worked in such diverse fields as spacecraft pre-launch testing to gantry based launch operations, from logistics to facility manager for a secret project.  Along the way there was a lot of hard work, exciting events and funny times as I soared though 'glass ceilings'. 

Includes morning tea.
