FWCC - About the Chamber
Growing up on an Ohio farm, Tom Henricks remembers watching aircraft fly over from the seat of a tractor. The earthbound youth had big dreams that took him United States Air Force Academy where he became a "Top Gun" fighter pilot and later a test pilot. Selected by NASA in 1985, Henricks joined the ranks of the astronauts in July 1986 and has commanded four space shuttle missions. Now an executive at Bell Helicopter, Henricks will share his inspirational story at Chamber's next Gold Member Breakfast. What: Gold Member Breakfast featuring former astronaut Tom Henricks "If you have just one question you want to ask someone who has actually been to space, this is your chance," said Henricks. "When I speak to groups, I like to make space real place for them, a real experience," said Henricks. "It won't be long before you can buy a ticket and go yourself." Henricks notes the difference between the exploratory side of space travel and the commercial. "It won't be long before you can buy a ride into space for $200,000," he said. But he added it won't become common until developers can get the price down to around that of an expensive cruise. As for the U.S. space program, Henricks is delighted that President George W. Bush has tasked NASA to go back to the moon and then on to Mars within the next two decades. "The space shuttle will be retired by 2010," said Henricks. "The winning design to replace it will be announced next year. NASA will continue to explore space while entrepreneurs will be responsible for its commercialization. Henricks has no problem with the commercialization of space. He points to such things as improved weather forecasting and communications as results of space-derived technology. These days, Henricks often speaks to groups sharing his space experience as well as talking about making dreams come true. As a boy on a farm, he was starstruck by space and determined to get there. He achieved that dream and that sense of awe has never left him.
