Join Us for an Evening with a NASA Astronaut

If you've ever wondered how astronauts drink coffee in space, shower or perform other mundane activities in zero gravity, then you'll definitely want to share dinner and an evening with NASA astronaut, Dr. Sandra Magnus.

Magnus was selected as an astronaut candidate in 1996 and flew her first mission in 2002.  In an interview about her missions, Magnus said, "Atlantis was the first one I ever flew on, and now it will be my last mission as well.  So it holds a special place in my heart."

Join us for "Tales from Space: Inspiring the Next Generation of Leaders in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math."  Proceeds will benefit the Boone County K-12 FIRST Robotics Competition and FIRST Lego League Participation.

The program will be on Thursday, November 10, 2011 at the Hampton Inn & Suites at the University from 6:30-8:30 pm.  Cost is $30 per person.  Click here for tickets!
