Stanford symposium on future of air and space travel

On Dec. 17, 1903, the Wright Brothers ushered in the era of powered flight at Kitty Hawk. Most centennial celebrations held this year to commemorate that flight look back at aviation milestones dotting the timeline between then and now. But on July 31, the School of Engineering will look ahead to forecast how Stanford research is likely to change the way we traverse the clouds and cosmos during the next 100 years. The symposium, titled ''The Future of Air and Space Travel,'' will take place from 4 to 7:30 p.m. in the Teaching Center of the Science and Engineering Quad. Registration is required: http://soe.stanford.edu/alumni/corpsite/index.html

''It's appropriate that there be an event here at Stanford that celebrates [the centennial] because Stanford has had a major role in both aeronautic and astronautic developments in the United States,'' says Brian Cantwell, the Edward C. Wells Professor in the School of Engineering and chair of the Aeronautics and Astronautics Department. While commercial air travel hasn't fully recovered from the aftermath of Sept. 11 and the economic downturn, he says, research advances over the next two decades may aid its restoration by making flying cheaper, safer and more reliable.

''Stanford's Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics has consistently ranked in the top three nationwide and its distinguished faculty continue to work on breakthroughs in areas ranging from precision navigation to revitalizing air travel and improving access to space,'' says Jim Plummer, the John M. Fluke Professor of Electrical Engineering and the Frederick Emmons Terman Dean of the School of Engineering. He and Cantwell will co-host the event.

The symposium's keynote speaker will be Vance Coffman, chairman of the board and chief executive officer of Lockheed Martin Corp. Coffman received master's ('69) and doctoral ('74) degrees in aeronautics and astronautics from S
