Armstrong Event

The museum will be hosting a free public talk with former astronaut Story Musgrave at the Wapakoneta Middle School auditorium on Thursday, November 10, at 7:00 PM. Dr. Musgrave is best known for being the only astronaut in history to fly aboard all five space shuttles.

"Dr. Musgrave is one of the most distinguished and seasoned astronauts from America's Shuttle Program," says Armstrong Museum Executive Director Dante Centuori. "Having him here in Wapakoneta and being able to listen to the stories about his life first-hand will be an amazing experience for the local community."

Dr. Musgrave also holds the honor of being NASA's most formally educated astronaut, having earned six degrees over the course of his career. Dr. Musgrave served in the field of medicine before being accepted into the NASA Astronaut Corps in 1967 as a scientist-astronaut. Over his career, Dr. Musgrave has written 25 scientific papers on aerospace medicine and physiology, temperature regulation, exercise physiology, and clinical surgery..

Doors for the vent will open at 6:30 PM and Dr Musgrave will be available after the event for a brief meet and greet session. For more information, please call the museum at (419)-738-8811.
