B. Gentry Lee

For over fifty years Gentry Lee has had the good fortune to be deeply involved in the robotic exploration of our solar system.  This exploration has revolutionized mankind’s understanding of our place in the universe and asked tantalizing questions about the possible existence elsewhere of life and intelligence.  Recently we have discovered thousands of planets in orbit around other stars and given the question “Are We Alone?” a new meaning.  Mr. Lee will talk about the highlights of his exploration career and, in passing, touch on the role of wires and harnesses on the most memorable spacecraft.
