Frontiers Lecture: Spaceman: An Evening with Mike Massimino
November 21, 2016
Astronaut Mike Massimino’s journey to becoming an astronaut was as unlikely as it is compelling. Growing up in a blue-collar Long Island town, going to college was a big deal; going to space was unthinkable. His new book, Spaceman: An Astronaut’s Unlikely Journey to Unlock the Secrets of the Universe, is an ode to following your dreams and finding your place in this world—or out of it.
Note: A book signing will follow.
