The Ultimate Transportation - Trips to Outer Space
NASA Astronaut Dr. Jeffrey Wisoff, a Lawrence Livermore Laboratory scientist and deputy associate director, will speak on “The Ultimate Transportation-Trips to Outer Space,” at 7 p.m., Thursday, February 16, at the Museum On Main, 603 Main Street, Pleasanton. Admission is $5 for museum members and $10 for non-members. Due to the popularity of this lecture on space travel, please call in your reservations early to (925) 462-2766. Memberships will be available for purchase that night.
Dr. Wisoff completed his master's and doctorate degrees at Stanford in 1986 and joined the faculty of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Rice University in Houston, Texas. His research focused on the development of new vacuum ultraviolet and high intensity laser sources. In 1990, he was selected as a NASA astronaut.
Dr. Wisoff is a veteran of four space shuttles which included activities aboard both the Russian Space Station Mir and the International Space Station. During these four flights, Dr. Wisoff performed three spacewalks totaling almost 20 hours which included testing tools for the first Hubble Telescope repair mission, construction of the International Space Station, and the test flight of an astronaut jet pack. He managed the operation of two on-orbit laboratories, the Space Radar Laboratory for high resolution mapping of the earth and the SpaceHab module which was the first commercial space laboratory.
He is the recipient of numerous awards including the NASA Distinguished Service Medal (2001), four NASA Space Flight Medals (2000, 1997, 1994, 1993), the Federation Aeronautique Internationale Korolev Diploma (2000), the NASA Group Achievement Award – TransHab Development Team (2000), the Federation Aeronautique Internationale Vladimir Komarov Diploma (1995), the NASA Group Achievement Award – Utilization, Operations and Training Assessment Team (1995), and the NASA Outstanding Performance Award (1993)
