1. Monday, August 23, 2010, 2-3:30 PM PDT (21-22:30 GMT)
Tim Dooley
comes to discuss the Victorian Space Age.
Tim Dooley’s interest in 19th century science fiction goes back to the late 50’s when he first saw the movie “The Fabulous World of Jules Verne”. During the 70’s and 80’s, he illustrated fantasy machines that included airships, land steamers, flying machines, submarine steamships, planetary and interstellar spacecraft. In 1986 these drawings created an opportunity to work in the aerospace industry.



He is now a Senior Designer at Meggitt Sensing Systems. In 1994 his drawings caught the attention of the woman who later became his wife. In 1997, one of his airship drawings was published in the Orange County Register’s Focus on Science page. In 2001, Lionel Trains produced an Aquarium Building accessory that was based on Tim’s original concept design sketch. That sketch was published in the June 2001 addition of “O Gauge Railroading” magazine. In 2003 he started building scratch built models of his own design for a Victorian space-age room in his home. One of them is a wall hanging cutaway of an interplanetary spacecraft that includes a space-drive engine. At the urging of friends, Tim is now working on a book that explains these models in detail and the stories behind them. It will also include approximately two hundred of his original illustrations with commentary.

Dennis Wingo is the author of the recently published book, “Moonrush: Improving Life on Earth with the Moon’s Resources.” He is also the CTO of Orbital Recovery Corporation and president of Skycorp, Inc.  He is a 22-year veteran of the computer, academic, and space communities and was an integral force in the use of commercial systems for use in space and flew the first MacIntosh on the Space Shuttle as experiment controller.  Orbital Recovery Corporation is developing a way to extend the life of satellites by up to ten years or more and SkyCorp Inc. has developed a patented approach to the development of highly capable spacecraft manufactured on orbit on the Space Shuttle or International Space Station. SkyCorp has also qualified payloads for flight to the station via the Russian Soyuz vehicle, one of which was used in the filming of a commercial last year for the American retailer Radio Shack.   Mr. Wingo received his degree in Engineering Physics at the University of Alabama in Huntsville where he won honors for his academic publications and for his unique approach to small satellite development.
