The Spacemobile (AESP) project has undergone many changes over the past half-century, but it's still serving NASA as one of the Agency's premier education programs. Oklahoma State University, among others, ran the program under contract to NASA for many years, and I'd say the bulk of current and former Spacemobilers worked for OSU at one time or another. Currently Penn State University is running the program. Penn State and OSU did a great job of working together to bring off this very nice anniversary celebration.
Bill didn't get many pictures at the reunion -- just these first three.
The rest are photos taken during the by a professional photographer.
That's Ben Casados studying the evening's PowerPoint slides while Jack Bannister is distracted from his dessert.
There's Minot Parker entertaining the crowd with stories of the old days. Minot was working for the Spacemobile program while Bill was still in high school.
There's Gordon Eskridge, Jack Bannister, and Pat Biggs. And that's enough pictures from Bill's iPhone. The rest came from the professional photographer.
