Timken’s unofficial aerospace historian takes a look at challenging customer applications over the years—and talks about how flying drones could someday change the shape of our cities.

Behind each space exploration, there’s more than a decade of collaborative research and development conducted by the public and private sectors. Timken was involved in early projects that gradually inched the technical community closer to the moon, and 50 years later, a new generation of Timken scientists and engineers still conduct this type of work, taking us deeper into space.
Our innovations will be aboard upcoming missions like the Mars 2020 rover, NASA’s Orion spacecraft for deep space exploration, and NASA’s mission to land the next man, and first woman, on the Moon by 2024.
