Former NASA Astronaut Bill Shepherd (Capt.

Captain Shepherd will be discussing his experiences in space, give highlights of the museum’s newest Space Gallery addition, and will share his thoughts on the future of space exploration. The exhibit will showcase many of Shepherd’s artifacts from his space missions plus models of the latest rockets from NASA, SpaceX, and Blue Origin. A former Navy Seal and NASA astronaut, Captain Shepherd has flown three Space Shuttle missions. Along with two Russian cosmonauts, he launched from Kazakhstan in 2000, docked to the International Space Station, and began “Expedition One” onboard the new space outpost.
