The Right Stuff…Past, Present, & Future

Andy Poniros

Andy will discuss his recent experiences interacting with the U.S. space program, including a trip to California to meet and interview Apollo-Soyuz and three-time space shuttle astronaut Vance Brand. He’ll take us behind the scenes to where the “Right Stuff” began at Edwards Air Force Base in California. He will interview Eileen Collins, the first woman to pilot and command a U.S. space shuttle. Andy will also discuss the future of manned space exploration.
