Upcoming Events: 

July 19, 2022: 7:30 p.m. Colloquium 50th Anniversary Retrospective & Celebration by Ms. Sheila Thibeault

Celebrate 50 years of informative, interactive, and always entertaining conversations with some of the top minds in
science, engineering, and research, July 19, 2022. The Langley Colloquium, founded in 1971, has spent more than 50 years educating the NASA Langley workforce through stimulating lectures and spirited question and answer sessions. July will mark the 593rd Colloquium talk and 555th different speaker. Included along with the scientists, engineers, and historians who have delighted and challenged us have been speakers from other walks of life, including Andrew Young, Arthur M Schlesinger, Jr., Eric Sevareid, George Gallup, Nate Silver, Ray Bradbury, and William F. Buckley, Jr. The Sigma Series is not quite as old as the Colloquium, so this is your chance to hear clips never before presented to the public.
