Proceedings of the X-15 First Flight 30th Anniversary Celebration
Kenneth E. Hodge
Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to the X-15 30th anniversary celebration. I'm pleased to be the program chair
man. My name is Ken Hodge. This afternoon we are having a technical symposium, and if we run it right, we will
be done at 5:30 in time for those of you who are going to the banquet and pilots' panel this evening to get there in
plenty of time. So now to the symposium.
Our first speaker is Dr. Dale Compton, Deputy Director of the Ames Research Center, and he will provide a
welcome to all of you who are our guests today.
