All 10th, 11th, and 12th grade IB students convened in the auditorium on Sept. 12th to participate in a presentation sponsored by NASA and Columbia University. With beautiful footage from the Hubble telescope, the International Space Station, and various still photos of rocket launches and other NASA activities, Dr. Michael Massimino led the students through his adventures as an astronaut. Besides having his own show and running a science and engineering museum, Dr. M is an author and professor at Columbia, which is also his alma mater. Having the "claim to fame" of being the first person to ever tweet from space, his celebrity also extends to sitcoms. He has had the pleasure of appearing on "The Big Bang Theory" six different times, which he said was "great fun." His personable manner and humorous take on his exploits were very entertaining and made for a fun and informative event.
