Lockheed CEO: Time is now to inspire next generation of space pioneers

Colorado Springs Gazette, News

The nation's space sector has a golden opportunity to inspire a generation of youth to pursue space careers, Lockheed Martin Corp. CEO Marillyn Hewson said Tuesday in Colorado Springs.

Hewson compared President Donald Trump's reformation of the National Space Council, headed by Vice President Mike Pence, to a speech by President John F. Kennedy just four months into his term that called for putting a human on the moon by the end of the 1960s.
