MESSAGE 8: NASA ASTRONAUTS AND SCIENTISTS MEET AT THE CITADEL TO DISCUSS THE FUTURE OF SPACE EXPLORATION DURING 10TH ANNUAL PRINCIPLED LEADERSHIP SYMPOSIUM
What a day we had! One of the few humans who has walked on the moon, Brig. Gen. Charlie Duke, Col. Bresnik, NASA mission director and Citadel alumnus (’85) Steve Odendahl, NASA planetary geologist, Noah Petro, and …well…me…joined for a panel at The Citadel in March to discuss resilience in space exploration. It was amazing to be a part of the compelling discussion, led by Dean John Weinstein who heads The Citadel School of Science and Mathematics.
Col. Bresnik joined us remotely from his training in Russia as he continues preparations for what now is expected to be a mid-July expedition to the International Space Station. Hearing Brig. Gen. Duke, Col. Bresnik, and the remarkable two scientists discuss the current challenges for space exploration, as well as their hopes for the future was enlightening for the standing-room only audience.
