Member’s Activities:  Curt Westergard MN’10

As part of the STEM 30 education program for NASA TV Curt Westergard displayed his company’s aerostat balloon inside the Smithsonian Institute’s Air and Space Museum  (Hazy Center, Dulles) for two days.

Curt commented: “History surely repeats itself since  we  had a 7ft drone mounted as an experimental payload to safely  test Lost Link navigation  scenarios.So much like the  Curtis Sparrow bi-planes that the Airship  Macon  used to release  85 years earlier.”
