On Thursday May 14th at the Ulysses Philomathic Library, Marlowe Cassetti will share his experiences at NASA. He was a part of sending the first astronauts into space and on the moon. Marlowe will even reveal how he was part of a Government UFO cover up and how he almost was excluded from entering the space race because of his Italian heritage. This exciting talk will begin at 7:00 pm in the Melvin Community Room of the library.
Cassetti grew up in Elmira, New York and earned his Bachelor of Aeronautical Engineering from Georgia Tech in 1957. He then started his professional career at NACA, Langley Research Center where he conducted aeronautical and rocket research. Four months after he joined NACA the Soviet Union launched Sputnik, NACA became NASA, and Marlowe was off on the greatest adventure of his life.
The Trumansburg Middle School Community read starts April 28th and ends May 6th. This year’s text is Malala Yousafzai’s 2013 speech to the United Nations on the importance of education. This short text by a young woman who was shot by the Taliban because she spoke out in favor of education is inspiring and carries an important message.
