Astronaut Nick Patrick at SDASM

February 9, 2010

NASA astronaut Nick Patrick is currently orbiting the Earth at around 17,500 miles per hour aboard the space shuttle Endeavour. A while ago he visited the Museum to give a talk to some local engineering students and school children. While he was here he spent some time touring the Museum with a fellow Brit, Francis French (Director of Education). You can see some pictures of Patrick’s tour below:
