About this talk

The Red Hat® Coffee Hour with Intel series is a monthly videocast featuring luminaries from technology, society and the world of STEM. Topics for discussion will include governmental and societal impacts of technology and open source as well as the role of technology and work/life balance. As our nation grapples with the changes brought on by COVID-19, we will hear from highly credible experts in their field who will inform, educate and inspire us all. Open source communities provide models for innovation across technologies, processes, and culture. In open source communities, the best ideas win no matter where they come from, code and processes are transparent and shared with all, and it’s everyone’s job to assure quality and security. You could certainly say that NASA Astronaut Peggy Whitson likes her space - in fact in 2017, she set the record for the most cumulative days spent in space of any NASA Astronaut at more than 534 days. She’s spent in excess of two years total in space, and was voted one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential people of 2018. Join us, while Adam Clater, Chief Architect of Red Hat and Peggy talk about the career arc that led her to be a NASA Chief Astronaut, Commander of the International Space Station and more than 60 hours worth of space walks. Dr. Peggy Whitson will provide her insights on the evolving commercial space race 70 years after JFK and second industrial revolution.
