Flight Path Museum Tour – December 6, 2016

Immediately following the ARC Holiday Luncheon, we will have an opportunity to tour the Flight Path Museum (the museum is located just across Imperial Avenue from the Embassy Suites). Within the museum is the Space Gallery exhibit that was just opened to the public in September. ARC member Steve Soukup worked on behalf of the museum to establish the Gallery. The museum funded the production and installation of all of the displays and graphics, and Aerospace provided the artistic and technical talent needed to develop the displays and graphics as an in-kind donation to the museum. Steve has agreed to conduct a one hour tour for us of the gallery after our ARC luncheon (at approximately 2:00pm). The museum (map) is within walking distance from Embassy Suites, or there is plenty of parking at the museum. Please RSVP with your name and the number of people in your group if you are interested in the tour.
BTW: The museum is currently seeking the donation or loan of space-related artifacts of historic value to display in their gallery. If you have items that you would be willing to contribute, please contact Steve at

Any Interest in Museum Outings?

I am aware of three Aerospace Retirees that are docents at local museums and are willing to lead tours for us. We can tour the South Coast Botanical Garden, the Getty Center and the Peterson Car Museum. At the Getty, you will need to pay for parking and at the other two museums there are entrance charges. Any retiree who would be interested in joining a  tour group for any of the above museums or is a docent at another museum, please respond to this post by going to the Contact Us page.

Aerospace STEM Endowment Fund

For 55 years, The Aerospace Corporation has been dedicated to helping its customers meet the increasing demand for exquisite capabilities on complex technological systems. In recent years, the number of students in the United States studying the STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering, and math) has been steadily declining. This is a particular concern at Aerospace, due to our need for a cadre of the best technical talent to allow the corporation to fulfill its objective of assuring 100-percent customer mission success.

As part of its corporate strategy, Aerospace has a goal to inspire the next generation of engineers and scientists. To that end, the corporation’s many volunteers have supported a variety of STEM programs and projects. Now, Aerospace has taken the next step in STEM support: establishing the Aerospace STEM Endowment Fund. Sustained through employee donation, charitable organizations, and estate gifts, the fund will be used to support student scholarships and grants, schools with significant percentages of under-represented and underprivileged students, teacher education programs, and other programs as the fund grows.

You can help by contributing by check to the STEM Endowment Fund. You can give during the period December 8, 2015 to January 31, 2016, or quarterly in March, June, September, and December 2016.

Please make your tax-deductible donations payable to Aerospace STEM Endowment. Send checks to:

The Aerospace Corporation
General Accounting/M1-365 P.O. Box 92957
Los Angeles, CA 90009-2957

Encouraging and supporting the next generation in pursuing STEM studies is a critical need for the corporation and the nation.
