Myron Fletcher, SLS Rocket Propulsion Engineer, Boeing

Myron Fletcher, an engineer at The Boeing Company, talks about the Space Launch System (SLS) program and the educational experience that propelled him into his career as a rocket scientist, in this video from WGBH and The Documentary Group. The SLS is a rocket designed to take humans into deep-space exploration. Fletcher, who works in rocket propulsion and knows that a lot of thrust will be needed to get the SLS off the ground, explains his excitement about being involved in the program. He credits his education in Little Rock, Arkansas, in a school with a direct historical connection to the civil rights movement, for allowing him to dream big.
