Also known as the “Rocket Reunion,” the banquet will include dinner and cash bar. After dinner, Mr. Jones will explain Rocket Crafters’ move to Space Coast Regional Airport and its nextgeneration hybrid rocket motors, dual propulsion jet/rocket aircraft and suborbital spacecraft. In addition, two Florida Tech students’ teams funded by the MSRP will present their projects for the 2012-13 school year.

Social hour starts at 6 p.m. and dinner follows at 7. The event is open to the public and provides an opportunity to meet space pioneers up close and learn firsthand about space projects and history.

The Missile, Range and Space Pioneers is a nonprofit Space Coast organization that actively provides mentoring and financial support to science and engineering students at area universities.

Formed in 1966, the organization provides many opportunities for people involved in missile, space and range activities at Cape Canaveral and Kennedy Space Center to actively maintain acquaintances with each other and the community. There are approximately 1,000 missile, range and space workers, former workers, and advocates on the rolls of the Pioneers.
