How to manage the outer space ? with Dr Edgar D. Mitchell

How to manage the outer space ? with Dr Edgar D. Mitchell


Dr Edgar D. Mitchell
US astronaut who walked on the moon

Edgar Mitchell, Sc.D. (1930) is an American pilot and a retired captain in the United States Navy and NASA astronaut. On Feb. 5, 1971, he became the sixth of only 12 men to step on the moon. As the lunar module pilot of Apollo 14, he spent nine hours working on the lunar surface.
While on active duty as a test pilot for the U.S. Navy, he completed an M.S. in aeronautical engineering at the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School and a doctorate in aeronautics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Mitchell also served in combat during the Korean War as a fighter pilot. In 1970, he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

But in 1971, Edgar Mitchell returned from his mission to the moon a changed man. After retiring from NASA in 1972, he founded the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS), for the purpose of consciousness research and other related phenomena and later wrote “The Way of the Explorer” to document his experiences with mysticism and space. The meeting will be moderated by our colleague Ed Girardet.
