BIRTHDAYS OF THE MONTH
We will honor our historical role model, Benjamin Banneker who was born a free man in Maryland on November 9, 1731. He invented the first clock and almanac ever made in the United States. Among his many accomplishments, Benjamin Banneker provided major architectural and surveying assistance in the developmental plans for Washington, DC.
We will celebrate the birthday of our present day role model, Dr. Guion S. Bluford, who was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on November 22, 1942 . Colonel Guy Bluford was NASA’S First African American Astronaut. In 1964 he received a B.S. degree in Aerospace Engineering with a minor in Laser Physics, from Penn State, in 1974 a M.S.in Aerospace Engineering and in 1978 a Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering, both from the US Air Force Institute of Technology. Dr. Bluford also earned a MBA from the University of Houston. He earned the rank of Colonel in the US Air Force and was a fighter pilot who flew 144 combat missions, 65 of which were over north Vietnam. In 1983 as a member of the Orbiter Challenger on the Mission STS-8, (the first mission to launch and land at night.) he became the first African American in space. Dr. Bluford participated in four Space Shuttle fights between 1983 &1992. On June 5, 2010 Dr. Guion Bluford was inducted into the US Astronaut Hall of Fame.
