“Space Invaders” party hosted by SpaceX
Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX) appears be picking up the pace – in launches and parties. In December, we reported on an “epic” holiday party hosted by SpaceX near its Hawthorne, CA, headquarters. Just last night, the company hosted a “Space Invaders” themed function at the Satellite 2015 Conference and Exhibition in Washington, DC. As in December, many party-goers used social media to post photos of the event. An assortment of those photos are below:
Scott earned both a Bachelor’s Degree in public administration, and a law degree, from Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama. He currently practices law in the Birmingham suburb of Homewood. Scott first remembers visiting Marshall Space Flight Center in 1978 to get an up-close look at the first orbiter, Enterprise, which had been transported to Huntsville for dynamic testing. More recently, in 2006, he participated in an effort at the United States Space and Rocket Center (USSRC) to restore the long-neglected Skylab 1-G Trainer. This led to a volunteer position, with the USSRC curator, where he worked for several years maintaining exhibits and archival material, including flown space hardware.
Scott attended the STS – 110, 116 and 135 shuttle launches, along with Ares I-X, Atlas V MSL and Delta IV NROL-15 launches. More recently, he covered the Atlas V SBIRS GEO-2 and MAVEN launches, along with the Antares ORB-1, SpaceX CRS-3, and Orion EFT-1 launches.
