Please mark your calendars for Saturday, Oct. 25, and join us at Club headquarters in New York for a special all-day Space Stories program focusing on the history of human spaceflight. This year's venue will feature astronauts and engineers from a number of different manned missions using the Cold War as a backdrop.
Among confirmed storytellers so far are Gen. Charles Duke FN'92, Apollo 16 moonwalker; Richard Garriott MN'98 and Greg Olsen MN'07, both of whom flew aboard Soyuz to ISS; four-time Shuttle/Soyuz veteran Leroy Chiao FN'05; Walter Cunningham, Apollo 7 Lunar Module pilot; Cady Coleman, who performed a live flute duet with Ian Anderson aboard ISS (and who will play at Space Stories); and Brian Binnie MED'06, who piloted SpaceShipOne to win the Ansari X Prize in 2004
Many others have been invited to speak and updates will be forthcoming on the Club website and via e-blasts, but this promises to be one for the ages (pun intended!).
Save the date — Oct. 25 — it will be "astronaut central" at The Explorers Club!
