UI engineering lecture on international space station Nov. 14

Laurie Darling, Flight Design & Dynamics Division, NASA, Johnson Space Center, Houston, will deliver a Caterpillar Distinguished Lecture at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 14, in Room 1505 of the Seamans Center for the Engineering Arts and Sciences.

She plans to discuss "NASA's Role in the International Space Station Program." The International Space Station, involving teams from 16 countries worldwide, is the most ambitious project of its kind in NASA's history.

The lecture, free and open to the public, is co-sponsored by the University of Iowa College of Engineering, the department of mechanical and industrial engineering, and the Caterpillar Foundation.

The Caterpillar Distinguished Lecture Colloquium is made possible by grants awarded to the UI College of Engineering through the UI Foundation by the Caterpillar Foundation of Peoria, Ill. The grants comprise the Caterpillar Excellence Fund, which aids student, faculty and curriculum development in the College of Engineering.

Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all UI-sponsored events. People requiring an accommodation in order to participate in this program are asked to contact in advance the UI College of Engineering at (319) 335-5764.
