The Life & DREAMS OF SHELBY JACOBS

Meet Shelby, a mechanical engineer from the Apollo era! As Project Manager of the Apollo-Soyuz orbiter, Shelby designed instrumentation that would capture one of the most repeated images in space history: the separation between the first and second stages of the Apollo 6 spacecraft in 1968.

Shelby Jacobs’s contribution to space exploration is a truly remarkable feat. The Space Center is honored to display Shelby’s life achievements revolving around his work and personal life as an African American aerospace engineer working in the 1960s.

Now on display through Spring 2019!


Meet & Greet with Shelby Jacobs!

Saturday, February 16 12:30 - 2:30 PM

Join us at the Columbia Memorial Space Center and meet Shelby Jacobs! Then, join Shelby and students from the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) chapter of UCLA for a moderated discussion panel on the changing culture of engineers.
