Joseph Phillip Loftus Jr. Mobile Museum

 


The Career of Joseph Loftus Jr. at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) spanned 47 years from the foundation of NASA until 2005.  His contributions along with those of thousands of other dedicated people at NASA today continue to impact our daily lives through their scientific discoveries. The concept of a Mobile Museum Exhibition Platform (MMEP) was envisioned by Mr. Loftus and designed to maximize the learning experience by providing a mobile hands-on, user-friendly museum exhibit designed for all age groups.

Project Mercury

Mr. Loftus was directly responsible for Crew Accommodations, Crew Control and Display Systems, and was part of the team tasked with crew selection of the seven astronauts for the Mercury Program.

Project Apollo

Mr. Loftus was Director of Operations in the System Engineering Program for the Apollo Lunar Missions.  He was directly responsible for Crew Accommodations, Crew Control and Display Systems, and was part of the team tasked with crew selection for the Apollo Program. Mr. Loftus led the task force to extend the "Stay Time" the crew could spend on the lunar surface from 24 to 72 hours.

The Orbital Re-Entry of Skylab and the Russian MIR Space Station.

In 1979, Mr. Loftus led NASA’s effort to create and fund the Orbital Debris Program Office.  He was also NASA's envoy to the National and International Aeronautical community, including co-authoring the first technical report on Space debris to the United Nations.

We would like to thank all those people and organizations that have already donated to jplmuseum. We have met our goal for the encapsulation of the Apollo 11 heat shield.

Thank you to all the supporters we were able to help over 200 Oregonians meet Dr. Chaffee and we are grateful for his participation.

 

 

We are proud of the High School  Robotics Teams from Oregon, for winning a spot in the 2017 First Robotics Competition in Houston, Texas the week of April 19 - 22rd 2017. JPLMUSEUM.ORG was able to schedule Dr. Norman Chaffee to meet with all the teams from Oregon on April 19th at Space Center Houston.  We would like to express our gratitude to Dr. Norman Chaffee, retired Nasa engineer, who will be giving the teams a personal tour.  Check out Summit High School Team "Chaos Theory"  video.   https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=PQEcSrZwzW4
