Event Description

Former NASA physicist and engineer Peter F. MacDoran will share his true-life story of Cold-War espionage depicted in his book, The Old Men Will Die First. In October 1973, the world was on a collision course towards World War III. Underground Soviet dissenters chose visiting scientist Peter F. MacDoran to carry crucial papers back to the United States. The KGB knew a messenger existed, but not who or where he was. How was a space scientist, entirely untrained in matters of espionage, to carry out such a mission?
