Dr. Stephen Robinson to Speak in Folsom, Feb 19

Astronaut Dr. Stephen Robinson will be speaking at Three Stages at Folsom Lake College on Tuesday, February 19th. He's the veteran of four flights on the Space Shuttle, including the Return to Flight mission of the Discovery, and one of the final missions in ISS assembly aboard the Endeavour.

He's logged over 48 days in space on those missions, and over 20 hours of time spent on space walks.

He's also somewhat of a "local", he completed his undergraduate work at UC Davis, and did his graduate study at Stanford.

I'm sure this will be a very interesting talk, and it's not every day we get an astronaut out this way to give a presentation, so I recommend you check it out!
