The Size of the Universe and Where Will We Go?
Discipline: Environmental Control/Life Support
As an avid engineer and amateur astronomer, Mike Lawson presented a perspective on the size of the universe and asked the question, “Where will we go?” This was an entry-level overview for the average space worker who really wanted to understand the size of stars and the distance between objects in space. Mike provided information about familiar orbital objects and elaborated more on galaxies during the discussion. He also explored where humans could go in space and the physical limitations of going there.
