Dr. Roger D. Launius, Curator of the National Air and Space Museum at the Smithsonian, spoke for Western Kentucky University Librariesâ€™ Far Away Places series, on Thursday, November 20th at Barnes & Noble.
Dr. Launius is considered one of the nationâ€™s most prominent space historians and has authored or edited more than 25 books. His latest book, Robots in Space: Technology, Evolution and Interplanetary Travel, published by Johns Hopkins University Press, was the topic of discussion. In the book, Lanius and co-author Howard McCurdy of American University address the issue of how to best explore space: with humans or robots.
This event had more than eighty attendees, mostly WKU faculty and students, with some coming from the Bowling Green community.

I really like the style of the website. I had a peek at your source code, hope you don’t mind, to check what theme you are using. Is it it a no cost theme or do I have to purchase it?
I have read about this case and it was sensational. Although it was very clear that Al Hassan al-Majid and the rest of his group did it, they barely manage to counter it. Their defense was good but the evidence was overwhelming.
Aw, this was a really quality post. In theory I’d like to write like this also – taking time and real effort to make a good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and never seem to get anything done… Regards…
The summary was very well done and quite usefull.
