Richard Joins NRL’s Pete Wilhelm on The Space Show

Host David Livingston recently hosted Richard Easton and Peter Wilhelm, retired director of the Naval Research Lab’s Naval Center for Space Technology, for a broad-ranging discussion about Wilhelm’s pioneering work with satellites and his involvement with the development of GPS.

Wilhelm was involved with several classified programs, and briefly discussed his work on the first spy satellite under a program called GRAB, that was recently declassified. He also talked about how his career led him to meet people like Werner Von Braun and Elon Musk.
