Astronauts from Around the World

Date: Oct 16, 2019
Location(s): 
Space is a truly international endeavor. Join us Oct. 16 for the next installment of our ongoing Thought Leader Series, presented by the University of Texas Medical Branch.

As part of the Association of Space Explorer’s Planetary Congress convening in Houston, four fliers will discuss their lives in space and careers as space explorers.

British cosmonaut Helen Sharman, NASA astronaut Cady Coleman, JAXA astronaut Koichi Wakata and Romanian cosmonaut Dumitru-Dorin Prunariu will share their mission experiences.

Sharman was the first British citizen in space and the first woman to visit the Mir space station. Coleman flew twice on the shuttle and once to the International Space Station (ISS). Wakata was the first Japanese commander of the ISS. Prunariu was president of the Romanian Space Agency and is a founding member of the Association of Space Explorers.

This evening event is free to the public, however a ticket is required because space is limited.
