Learn from an Astronaut
We have a REAL Astronaut coming in to speak to the kids on Saturday, September 16th, 2017 to the Joe Dimaggio Children's Hospital Kids Love & Family Expo!
Astronaut Gregory Chamitoff was in space for more than 198 days, in 2008, as the flight engineer and science officer for a 6-month mission aboard the International Space Station during Expeditions 17 and 18.
He launched to the station on shuttle mission STS-124 on May 31st, 2008 and returned to Earth on November 30th, 2008 on shuttle mission STS-126.
Then, from May 16 to June 1, 2011, Chamitoff served as a mission specialist on the STS-134 mission, which was the last flight of Endeavour and delivered the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer. The AMS holds great promise for fundamental breakthroughs in our understanding of the Universe. He also performed two spacewalks, the last of which marked the completion of station assembly and was the final spacewalk of the Space Shuttle Program.
