August 23rd, 2017 · No Comments · Events, News

As part of our 50th anniversary celebration, the University Libraries will host astronaut and author Mark Kelly for its Ordinary People, Extraordinary Stories lecture series on Tuesday, Oct. 24, 2017.

With an extraordinary career of service to our military, our nation and humanity, Kelly has secured his place in history as a role model, modern-day pioneer and leader of distinction. Together with his identical twin brother, Scott, he has laid the groundwork for the future of space exploration as the subjects of an unprecedented NASA study on how space affects the human body.

Kelly is known for captivating audiences with lessons learned from his extensive travels and experiences in the Navy, outer space and on the ground. From leading teams in some of the most dynamic environments imaginable, to the thrill of spaceflight, and the recovery and resilience of his wife Gabrielle Giffords, he will reveal what he believes are the foundations for success to accomplish your mission in life and work.

Tickets for the event are free, but an RSVP is required. Guests who are interested in meeting Captain Kelly can attend the VIP reception prior to the event.  For more details, visit the event webpage.
