Our speaker and program this year is St Mary's County resident, retired US Navy Captain and former NASA Astronaut, Pierre Thuot. His theme: Murphy's Law at Mach 25 -- an account of his experiences on the space shuttle Endeavour when he and two collegues captured a slowly-spinning 9,000 lb. communications satellite with their gloved hands.
Captain Thuot is a veteran of three space shuttle flights: in 1990 aboard Atlantis, Endeavour in 1992, and Columbia in 1994. He was the lead Extra Vehicular Activity (EVA or spacewalk) astronaut on the maiden flight of the shuttle Endeavour and will share his experiences from that challenging mission. His multi-media presentation about this flight will bring to life how to face unexpected challenges and the lessons needed to overcome them.
