Aldridge Commission – This Week: Dayton

Experts lined up for space panel

Dayton-area participants include University of Dayton President Daniel J. Curran; Stanley Mohler, head of Wright State University’s aerospace medicine program; Gen. Gregory Martin, head of the Air Force Materiel Command, and Maj. Gen. Paul Nielsen, Air Force Research Laboratory commander.

AFRL researchers from Wright-Patterson and around the country are also on the list, as well as civilian space scientists and industry representatives.

Gov. Bob Taft’s science adviser, Frank Samuel, said he will testify at the hearing, and the commission has invited retired U.S. Sen. John Glenn, a former astronaut and the first American to orbit the Earth.

A panel of space education representatives includes June Scobee Rodgers, widow of Challenger Space Shuttle Commander Francis R. Scobee and a founder of the Challenger Center for Space Science Education. Dayton’s Kiser Middle School has one of two Challenger Learning Centers in Ohio.

The hearing is one of five the commission has scheduled around the nation as it prepares recommendations on ways to carry out the program President Bush outlined in January.
