Join us for a conversation with retired astronaut, Scott Altman, about his robust and notable career, including his experiences flying in the Navy, exploring space with NASA and leading missions for the Hubble Space Telescope. Scott will share details on the “crooked path” he took that led him to join the private sector after a 30-year career, and his current adventures as a president at ASRC Federal, where he and his team work alongside NASA to develop the next generation of technology in this new age of space travel. We will discuss everything from NASA’s current Artemis mission vision to Scott’s vision for the future of space exploration, and even his stint as a stunt pilot for the acclaimed film “Top Gun.” Don’t miss Scott’s personal reflections as he highlights many aspects of his extraordinary flying career and discusses what is next in space.
