Astronaut Duane Carey’s presentations are informative, multi-media, fun and dynamic. Duane will talk about his upbringing in low income housing in St. Paul, Minnesota, USA, his education and career in the United States Air Force as a fighter/combat pilot, test pilot, and Space Shuttle pilot. He will show slides of the different aircraft he flew while getting ready to transition to the space shuttle. He will show a space movie about his mission to the Hubble Space Telescope in 2002. Duane stresses the importance of math, science, teamwork and hard work to his audience, showing that these things open a portal to great adventures and an interesting life. At the end there is time for a lively and interactive Question and Answer session and an opportunity to speak to Duane afterwards.
Highly recommend for all audience
