To rally a new generation to gain the dreams and skills to go boldly, AirSpace Minnesota has invited two legends who worked with Gilruth in the Apollo program and a current Minnesota role model to tell their stories and visions for the future.
- Dr. Buzz Aldrin (first moon landing), NASA astronaut, USAF pilot, author & exploration advocate
