Tim Pickens

BBQ @Mojave Makers w/ Special Guest Tim Pickens
Thursday August 9 6 PM – 8 PM

Presented by Space Studies Institute & Mojave Makers, Building 82, 1347 Barnes St, Mojave, CA 93501

Itinerant inventor, rocket maker and raconteur Tim Pickens is our special guest for this first in a series of informal talks with informed Q & A.

Tim worked in Mojave on SpaceShipOne as the original propulsion lead at Scaled Composites. After a few years, he defected back home to Huntsville, unable to convince his brainy wife and daughter to join him on the space frontier. In Huntsville he started up Orion Propulsion Inc. Now he’s the fearless leader of Huntsville’s Google Lunar X Prize team Rocket City Space Pioneers, and launching his new company, Pickens Innovations. [More at]

Grilling begins at 5:30. BYO anything you want to throw on the grill, or simply enjoy the fine BBQ and cool drinks we provide for you.
