Engineers in Space - The US Space Program (5 credit hours)
This course chronicles the events and achievements of American engineers and scientists who had the responsibility for placing the first American into outer space. It summarizes the concepts and planning by NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) and other involved agencies, and describes the design efforts necessary to provide the equipment and the technical structure to allow our early astronauts to orbit above the earth's surface. This is the fourth in a series of Twentieth Century projects that overcame major technological challenges and were on the forefront of engineering innovation. The course details the contributions of the many engineers, manufacturers, and contractors, and their remarkable foresight.
