Tory Bruno, president and CEO at United Launch Alliance, or ULA, and former Lockheed Martin executive, will speak on “Vulcan, Centaur and the Post Scarcity Future of Humanity,” before students and faculty at 2 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 12, in the Grand Hall of Auburn’s Brown-Kopel Engineering Student Achievement Center.

His message will reveal that a staggering amount of natural resources lie just a few days’ trip away — resources that would unlock our journey to a post-scarcity economy. Bruno plans to share his vision for that future and the status on the next-generation launch vehicle ULA is developing to enable that vision, while continuing its legacy of 100 percent mission success.

Under Bruno’s leadership, he transformed the company to compete in a commercial market and to develop the Vulcan rocket, which builds on the technology of the Atlas V and Delta IV.

Bruno, who earned a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from California Polytechnic State University before completing graduate and management courses at Harvard, Santa Clara and others, will answer questions from students during the formal event.
