In the cast of the International Space Station that’s 15.7 times per day! Last Friday attendees at the Destination Station Science and Technology Research Panel held at the RTP Headquarters had the opportunity to learn details about life aboard the ISS from Astronaut Bill McArthur, a veteran of four space flights, with over 224 days logged in space. Discussion included first-hand photos and video footage.
Dr. Tara Ruttley, Associate Program Scientist for the International Space Station Program was also on the panel and spoke about the experiments and discoveries made aboard the space station and its benefit to life on earth.
Following the program there was an opportunity for guests to ask questions and speak with panel members individually…A great event!
