An Evening with Dr. Gregory Olsen, Inventor, Entrepreneur and Space Traveler
Almost 100 people attended the lecture and discussion learned first-hand what it’s like to travel into space with U.S. scientist and entrepreneur Dr. Gregory Olsen.
Dr. Olsen became the world's third civilian space traveler. During his 10-day trip to the International Space Station (ISS) and back, he performed more than 150 orbits of the Earth, logged almost four million miles of weightless travel, and conducted several experiments in remote sensing and astronomy.
