A former NASA astronaut, a recurring character on the Big Bang Theory, and a New York Times Best-Selling author, Mike Massimino is sure to inspire! Mike grew up a working class kid. He said his big dream of becoming an astronaut was driven by determination and commitment. After two missions to the Hubble Telescope and four spacewalks to make critical repairs, Mike is now the Senior Advisor for Space Programs at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, an author, and in-demand speaker. Mike plans to share about teamwork, innovation, and leadership as a down to earth spaceman. 

The community is invited to attend the FREE distinguished lecture by Mike Massimino on Thursday, March 30. The event will be held at the Wagner Noël Performing Arts Center. No ticket is required.
