NASA Discussion of Recent Shuttle Mission
Monday, July 26, 2010 at 6:30 PM (EDT)
NASA and Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business invite the public to a discussion with the most recent space shuttle crew to fly in space at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, July 26. The McDonough School of Business will host the six astronauts in the Lohrfink Auditorium of the Rafik B. Hariri Building. The crew members will give a video presentation about their mission and answer questions from the audience.
Ken Ham commanded the flight and was joined by Pilot Tony Antonelli and Mission Specialists Garrett Reisman, Michael Good, Steve Bowen, and Piers Sellers. The six astronauts completed a 12-day mission aboard space shuttle Atlantis in May.
It was the third shuttle mission of 2010 and the last scheduled flight for Atlantis. The mission, designated STS-132, delivered the Russian-built Mini Research Module-1 to the International Space Station. Also known as Rassvet (which means "dawn" in Russian), the module provides additional storage space and a new docking port for Russian Soyuz and Progress spacecraft.
The mission's three spacewalks focused on replacing and installing components outside the station, including replacing six batteries, installing a communications antenna, and adding parts to the Canadian Dextre robotic arm.
The Georgetown University McDonough School of Business will broadcast the event.
PLEASE NOTE: Doors open at 6:00 p.m. on a first-come first-served basis for those who have RSVP'd. At 6:20 p.m., the general public will be permitted to fill in all remaining seats.
