In an exciting follow-up to the visit with Aviator Dick Rutan in April, the Point Lobos Section of the American Institute of Astronautics and Aeronautics presented a lecture with SpaceShipOne pilot Brian Binnie in late July. For his visit with NPS staff, faculty, students and visitors, Binnie shared the history of private space flight, and the direction that it is headed into the future. A retired pilot turned astronaut who secured the $10 million Ansari X-Prize in 2004, Binnie started his career with 20 years as a Naval Aviator.
