Our speaker Wednesday, March 13th was Mr. Alan Buck. You might know him as the little brother of our very own Mr. Brian Buck. Alan came and spoke to the club about SpaceX. SpaceX is a company that, Telsa owner Elon Musk, started in 2002. This is a private American owned Aerospace manufacturer and space transportation company. The company’s focus is to develop a reusable launch system. It was very interesting to learn about this company and its future goals. As always the club was thrilled to have Mr. Buck as a guest speaker.
