Astronaut John Grunsfeld Visit

Astronaut Dr. John Grunsfeld, CPAESS Manager Melanie Russ, and NASA Lead Scientist Dr. Lika Guhathakurta

The 2019 Heliophysics Summer School received a surprise guest! Dr. Lika Guhathakurta, Lead NASA Program Scientist for Living With A Star, secured a special talk for this year's students in Boulder, Colorado. Dr. John Grunsfeld, former NASA astronaut and veteran of five space shuttle flights, gave a short lecture to the summer school students: "A Conversation with an Astronaut/Scientist and Human Solar Cosmic Ray Detector." Astronaut Grunsfeld has repaired Hubble multiple times and was there to answer all kinds of questions for our students. We even had a prospective astronaut among them. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience and thoughts on the future of space exploration with us!
