Bill Ayrey will give a presentation on ILC Dover, Lunar Program, and provide a glimpse of some of the interesting products they manufacture with the focus on space suits at 11 a.m. April 20 at the Air Mobility Command Museum, 1301 Heritage Road, Dover Air Force Base.
ILC Dover, the backyard neighbor to Dover Air Force Base, has been making NASA's space suits since the first manned Apollo mission in 1967. ILC Space suits have thousands of hours protecting astronauts from the hazards of the space environment. This includes hundreds of hours of problem-free lunar spacewalks during the Apollo missions. Ayrey will provide information on the designs of space suits,
Ayrey has been with ILC for more than 30 years and, along with his primary job as test and calibration manager, he also acts as company historian. He and others at ILC provide outreach programs to the community including schools and civic organizations.
