"The Soviet JPL"
3:15pm, Saturday, May 10th
Soviet Russia's organization responsible for building their incredible machines to the Moon, Mars, and Venus began life as a maker of wooden airplanes. Fate couldn't have scripted a more crooked path between that and planetary landers, but somehow this place managed to connect these incongruent dots.
How in the world did the Soviets land on Venus - home to acid clouds, lightning rain, and 900-degree temperatures? How did they bring back lunar soil with an automatic machine? Is there any truth to their claim of returning the first picture from the surface of Mars? And just how did they get into the crazy role of doing all this in the first place?
Brimming with unpredictable turnabout, insane ideas which saved the day, and paradigm-busting approaches to the problem of the moment, Jay's talk will enlighten as well as entertain. The secret telephone network? The paranoia over copy machines? It's all here.
