NASA ASTRONAUT SHANE KIMBROUGH TO RETURN TO TELLUS SCIENCE MUSEUM ON FRIDAY

Written by Elizabeth Davis. Posted in News & Weather

The Tellus Science Museum in Cartersville invites you to duck out of work a little early this Friday, May 18th (if you can) and meet someone who has spent time aboard the International Space Station.

NASA astronaut Shane Kimbrough is scheduled to make a presentation in the Tellus Theatre at 1:15 pm.  He will share video, pictures and stories about his adventures in space travel, states David Dundee, astronomer for the museum, who adds that Kimbrough has logged a total of 189 hours in space.

Kimbrough, who holds a Master of Science degree from Georgia Tech, last paid a visit to the Tellus Museum back in 2013.  He has since spent 173 days aboard the ISS; that particular mission concluded just over a year ago.

Early arrival is advised by Dundee to those who plan to attend Kimbrough’s lecture.  Overflow viewing will be offered throughout the museum.

At the end of the lecture, Kimbrough will answer some questions submitted by audience members.  He will also be available (for a limited time) to take pictures with those in attendance.  Official NASA photographs of Kimbrough will be available while supplies last.
