Join HAL5 as we welcome back Luke Talley, who will talk about his career path working on computing technology. Luke worked on a wide range of computing technology programs in his varied career. He started at the Federal Electric Corp in Huntsville in 1965, working on Ground Support at Marshall Space Flight Center. He continued to support NASA and Army programs with IBM, working on the computing and systems engineering of the Saturn Instrument Unit, Skylab, and the Patriot Missile.
