Did You Know

Yesterday, September 17th, marked the 42nd anniversary of the day that NASA unveiled Enterprise, the world's first space shuttle. The big reveal was done before an excited crowd including several venerated cast members from the SciFi favorite, Star Trek. The Enterprise was originally set to be named The Constitution, but a write-in campaign from Star Trek fans convinced NASA and President Ford to re-name it.


Have a great week and keep networking!
