NASA astronaut returns in person to U-M’s Saturday Morning Physics

October 4, 2023


DATE: 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 7

EVENT: NASA astronaut Josh Cassada returns to the University of Michigan’s Saturday Morning Physics, this time in person. As a follow-up to January’s live event from the International Space Station, Cassada will present an overview of his crew’s recent mission, including results from on-board experiments as well as technology demonstrations.

Cassada and the rest of NASA’s Crew-5 lived and worked aboard—and, at times, on the outside of—the ISS for 157 days between October 2022 and March 2023. The event will also include a look toward future missions and time for a question-and-answer session.

PLACE: Central Campus Classroom Building 1420 Auditorium, 1225 Geddes Ave., Ann Arbor (for this Saturday Morning Physics session only)

INFORMATION: The hybrid event will also be livestreamed via YouTube. For more about the event: Saturday Morning Physics.

SPONSOR: Saturday Morning Physics, U-M Department of Physics
