August Expert Series reveals how public benefits from NASA spinoffs.

When NASA develops new products for the space program, the technologies or discoveries that made these products possible are licensed to U.S. businesses for the benefit of the public.

Dr. Stephen Feldman will discuss some of the most important products that have improved the lives of Americans as a result of the spinoffs from NASA research. He will also discuss the courage of the astronauts and some brief stories from inside the space community. Make plans to join us for this most timely and relevant discussion! It will be held on Saturday, August 10 at 11:00AM at the Canoe Lodge

Feldman was named President and CEO of The Astronauts Memorial Foundation on March 1, 1999 and retired on August 31, 2012. The board of directors of the Astronauts Memorial Foundation voted to give him the title of president emeritus in honor of his 13 years of service.
