Astronaut Inspires NDA Rocketry Students!

NASA Astronaut Garrett Reisman couldn't help but notice the pink R2G2 hats while he was out launching model rockets with his young son. After the launch, he introduced himself and treated NDA Rocketry students with stories about flying on all three Space Shuttles, his long stay on the International Space Station, and taking walks in space. Dr. Reisman told students about his current job, which is the Director of Space Operations at SpaceX.  What an amazing and unexpected encounter. R2G2 had no shortage of questions to ask him!
