Another spaceman visits Bath!
In what promises to be an awe-inspiring evening, Mike Massimino will discuss the hard work, camaraderie and sheer guts involved in the life of an astronaut. He served as an astronaut for NASA between 1996 and 2014, going on two missions to service the Hubble telescope, spending more than 30 hours on spacewalks, and being the first astronaut to tweet from space.
Mike has appeared as himself on the hugely popular sitcom, The Big Bang Theory, and is now a professor at the University of Columbia. His upcoming book, Spaceman, is his extraordinary and inspirational story, revealing what it is like to strap yourself into the Space Shuttle and blast off into space, or the sensation of walking in space, as he did when he embarked on an emergency repair of the Hubble telescope.
Join us for what is going to be a really special evening listening to Mike discuss achieving his dreams of going to space.
