Our May meeting will be held on Tuesday, May 16th at the Radisson Resort at the Port, Cape Canaveral.
Our speaker will be Larry Henderson, a computer expert who has worked in the field of computing as long as there was such a field.
Born in Wisconsin, Larry graduated from DeVry University in Chicago, and in 1972 went to work for Digital Equipment Corporation in Massachusetts. At the time DEC was one of the largest developer and manufacturer of mini-computers in the world.
After a stint in Ft. Lauderdale with ModComp, he decided the form his own company and relocated to Cocoa Beach where he founded Henderson Technical Systems in 1994. He soon shortened the name to HTS Computers and until recently custom built and serviced computers for individuals and small businesses in the area. Today he has closed his store- front location and continues a consulting business from his home.
He is a Radio Amateur and a member of the local group that has special dispensation from the FCC to broadcast space launches and is part of the emergency organization that would deal with any danger to the area outside the space center as well as in case of natural disasters.

The American Space Museum (formerly the U. S. Space Walk of Fame Museum) has opened a SPACE WORKERS HALL OF HONOR to identify anyone who has ever worked in any of our space programs. This is an online (web-based) recognition dedicating an entire page to each and every worker – past and present – to highlight and acknowledge their service. If you or a family member had any role at all at any time in our space programs, please log on to www.spacehonors.org and create a page spotlighting them. This project will help preserve our space history and honor those who made it possible!
