The Ohio Union Activities Board is sponsoring a talk by NASA Astronaut Mark Kelly.

From their website:

An American hero who exemplifies effective leadership and courage under pressure, highly decorated astronaut, Mark Kelly continues to secure his place in history, as he partners with his brother, Scott from the ground in a historic yearlong expedition and unprecedented study on how space affects the human body.

Already an experienced aviator and retired US Navy Captain, Kelly began his illustrious career with NASA in 1996, spending more than 50 days in space and commanding both the Space Shuttle Endeavour and Space Shuttle Discovery.

From leading teams in some of the most dynamic environments imaginable, to the thrill of spaceflight, to the personal tragedy that exposed how love and devotion to family is paramount to defining and achieving success, Kelly offers insights drawn from his various and extensive experiences that are truly out of this world.

The event takes place on October 12 at 7:30 p.m. in the Archie M. Griffin Ballroom at the Ohio Union.  Tickets are required, and are available while they last.
