Dr. Mike Massimino gave a talk to my 6th period class today. He’s a veteran astronaut of Space Shuttle missions STS-109 and STS-125 and a professor of engineering at Columbia University. We were so engaged by his stories of the violence of liftoff, performing a touchy repair on Hubble Space Telescope, and the comedy of the first meal a crewmate ate on Earth after landing.
Dr. Massimino was visiting Westminster as part of a recruiting trip from Columbia University.
