  • AIAA/IEEE(AESS) Joint Section Meeting - The Grumman Lunar Module

    AIAA/IEEE(AESS) Joint Section Meeting

    Wednesday, October 16, 2019

    Presentation: The Grumman Lunar Module

    Speaker: Ms. Lois Lovisolo - Former Northrop Grumman Historian, and Former Bethpage Public Library Director

    Location: Bethpage Public Library, 47 Powell Avenue, Bethpage, NY

    Schedule:

    • 6:00 PM Social Time
    • 6:30 PM Pizza
    • 7:00 PM Presentation

    In October of 1957, the successful launch of Russia's Sputnik shocked the nation and invigorated America's aircraft companies. After a number of Soviet 'firsts' in space, President John Kennedy upped the stakes by promising we would put a man on the moon and return him safely to Earth before the end of the decade. Grumman bid on, and lost, several of the ensuing competitions for Apollo hardware. But in l962, the lunar excursion module was awarded to Grumman Aircraft Engineering Corporation - the last major contract to be awarded by NASA. This is the story of the background, building and success of Grumman's engineering.

    Lois Lovisolo was employed by Grumman from 1978 to 1994, serving as assistant to the historian and then as Corporate Historian starting in 1985. After leaving Grumman, she became a librarian.

    Moral philosophy, or ethics, is the study of right and wrong. Ethical behavior is influenced by education, experience and social norms. We will discuss basic ethical philosophical concepts and how certain theories have helped shape the laws of our land. We will also discuss the tremendous trust placed upon design professionals by the general public and how ethical violations erode that privilege. Learning objectives are: understanding the basic concepts of moral philosophy; review specific theories that shape the rules and regulations of design professionals; discussion of the resulting public expectations; and review of case studies highlighting ethical dilemmas and applicable regulations.

    Increased Reimbursement Offer to ASME Long Island Section Members

    In reflecting on this year’s momentous 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, the ASME LI Section members are proud that the Apollo Lunar Module was designed and built by Grumman here on Long Island and that the LM has been previously designated as an ASME National Historic Mechanical Engineering Landmark.

    To commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar landing, the Cradle of Aviation Museum is holding several activities, among them the June 6th “Apollo at 50 Anniversary Dinner.” In recognition of the role that Long Island engineers played in the design and construction of the landmark Apollo Lunar Module, and to make participation more affordable, the ASME Long Island Section is increasing its reimbursement offer from $50 to $100 for up to twenty of its members who purchase a ticket and attend this dinner. We hope to see you there!
