STA Telecon with John Grunsfeld, Former NASA Science Mission Directorate AA

Date: Monday, May 11, 2020

Location: US,

Dear STA Colleague,

Please join us on Monday, May 11th from 4-5pm EST for a special Space Transportation Association videoconference with Dr. John Grunsfeld, Astronaut and former Associate Administrator of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, to mark the anniversary of the launch of STS-125 repair to the Hubble Space Telescope. 

As an astronaut who operated on Hubble multiple times in orbit, John knows the ins and outs of the telescope better than anyone and is eager to share his experiences and what we can look forward to in astronomy, space exploration and the space transportation which enables it all.

John will also be sharing remarkable photos and videos from his space travels. After working on three separate missions to repair the Hubble Space Telescope, including a flight aboard the shuttle Discovery in 1999, Columbia in 2002, and finally Atlantis in 2009, John deservedly earned the nickname of “Hubble’s repairman.”

A good Q&A session will follow our discussion. Please find full bio below.

As always with our telecons and small group meetings (a quaint form of social gathering, prior to the current pandemic), this session is off the record and Chatham House rules.

Also, techno-reminder, please keep your phone on mute, unless you are asking a question.
