Welcome to our virtual classroom where we offer 100 classes each year ranging from history and music to art and science. Our classes are for personal enrichment and are about 1-1/2 hours long.
Classes are conducted via Zoom by specialists in a variety of fields, many of whom are professors or retired professors.
This presentation is a first-person historical look at how high-resolution images were not only taken during the Cold War but returned via parachute to be caught in mid-air. Film was used in satellites to monitor treaty compliance and intelligence gathering of the Soviet Union and other “denied areas.” The vehicle, HEXAGON, was 60 feet long and took pictures from 100 miles up. The program was urgent and required cooperation between the CIA and the Air Force, guided by the National Reconnaissance Office. It was a critical Cold War asset.By Ricky Deutsch, BS Aerospace Engineering, MS, MBA, and Former Captain U.S. Air Force, Space Command.Tuesday 9/26/23 1 p.m. $15
The Continuing Education Center at Rancho Bernardo is a 501(c)(3) organization established in 1978. For our first 25 years we were part of San Diego State University's Extended Studies Department. In 2003, we became a free-standing, non-profit organization offering 100 classes a year for personal enrichment.
CEC is a non-sectarian and apolitical organization. We offer a platform for the exchange of ideas and do not endorse the views of those who speak in our classes.
Our classes are taught by university professors, retired professors, and experts in various fields.
As with most non-profit organizations, about two-thirds of our operating funds are derived from the generosity of donors. We can't do it without you. Thanks.
