Ask the Astronaut With Tom Jones

April 22, 2017, 7:30 p.m.

We are very excited to have veteran astronaut Tom Jones discuss his latest book Ask the Astronaut: A Galaxy of Astonishing Answers to Your Questions about Spaceflight.

Drawing from his four spaceflights and popular and intriguing questions from his audiences, Tom introduces the facts of life in space, and the latest developments in science, technology, and human exploration that will take us to the Moon, the asteroids, and beyond.

Ever wondered what space is really like? Thanks to his 25 years of training for, flying in, consulting on, and writing and speaking about space, astronaut and spacewalker Tom Jones can answer that question and many others. What do you feel on liftoff? What is weightlessness? Where do you sleep in space? Can you see the Great Wall of China? Jones answers every question you have ever had about space in Ask the Astronaut. His entertaining blend of wit, personal experience, and technical expertise shines in each answer, and together all the answers illuminate the true space experience from start to finish.

Presentation could last up to an hour, depending on audience participation.

Signed copies of the book Ask the Astronaut will available for purchase after the show.
