FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, January 25, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — As the Space Force’s Space Launch Delta 45 heads into successfully launching over 50 rockets this year with no sign of slowing, Florida is launching more exciting events and organizations than ever. To support the Guardians, as well as over 16,000 aerospace companies in Florida, the Space Force Association (SFA) has successfully launched it own Florida Chapter. The chapter has a leadership team in place and working toward SFA’s priority to support SF Guardians. Rob Fabian (President), Martin Amen (Vice President), and Susie Dabrowski (SE Region VP) attended the inaugural meeting.
FL Chapter SFA member, Brian Baluta, Lockheed Martin (LM) coordinated SFA’s sponsorship of Artemis 1 launch promotion events. FL Chapter members Rob Fabian, Martin Amen, Benneth Perez (Director of Outreach), and Susie Dabrowski attended LM’s launch events, 27-29 August, including a Mission Briefing, Kennedy Space Center Launch Pad 39B tour and launch viewing. Eric Sundby, SFA Executive Director and Matt Anderson, SFA COO also attended the launch viewing, along with members of the SFA Media team.
In December, the FL Chapter supported the Space Force’s and SLD45’s Inaugural T-minus 10 Miler run. The team established some lofty goals and now that our chapter has launched, we can expect our chapter to grow and flourish.
Artemis 1 launch was delayed until Nov 16th at 1:47 EST, and was the first, uncrewed launch of NASA’s Space Launch System. It flew the Orion crew capsule and completed its 25 day, 10 hour, 55 min, 50 sec mission on Dec 11, 2022. Artemis 2, the first scheduled crewed mission, is scheduled for May 2024.
