From the California Desert to the Baikonaur Cosmodrome

I loved “setting the stage” for technological innovation
by Lawrence S.

I was responsible for scheduling the Titan rocket launches at the Space Launch Complex IV and NRO Operations Center at Vandenberg Air Force Base, California. I loved this job! I was the integration scheduler for American and Russian launches in the Baikonur Cosmodrome, the world's first and largest operational space launch facility. It is located in the desert steppes of Kazakhstan. I was also the scheduling manager for Western Test Range Software Development, Santa Maria, California, and lead scheduler for the U-2 program in Palmdale, California.

My life has been a wonderful adventure!
