Join us for the next installment in our fascinating series, Science & Spirits, for a presentation by Dr. Mark Kinnersley from Airbus Defense and Space, Inc. Mark will be speaking about the Artemis program, which “is committed to landing American astronauts, including the first woman and the next man, on the Moon by 2024.” Mark has worked in the field of space exploration for many years for Airbus in Europe and the United States. As head of advanced projects and business development in the Human Spaceflight unit of Airbus he presented to the ‘Review of U.S. Human Spaceflight Plans Committee’ in 2009 and from 2013 to early 2019 was the Airbus liaison for the Orion European Service Module to Lockheed Martin Space Systems here in Denver. Recently Mark has moved to a new position which is looking at future space exploration activities for Airbus and in particular the Artemis and Lunar Gateway programs.
