I am excited to announce the appearance of Apollo 17 astronaut Harrison Schmitt at the 2019 Galactic Gathering on Oct. 12, 2019 in Mitchell, Indiana.
Dr. Schmitt will share the stage with Hollywood actor Joel Johnstone who portrayed Gus Grissom in the ABC miniseries "Astronaut Wives Club." There will be separate photo opportunities at this event for both individuals.
Tickets can be obtained here. Tickets are $30 per person for the speaking engagement and can be purchased in advance. Photos will be purchased the day of the event at the site of the photos.

I met Harrison Schmitt at MIT in the early 2000's. After his dissertation, we talked about flying and my 1946 Globe Swift. He is an ordinary guy.
