Astronaut Tracy Caldwell Dyson Lecture

Event Date: 
Monday, March 7, 2011

Dr. Tracy Caldwell Dyson, a former UCI postdoctoral scholar in chemistry (under AirUCI co-directors Barbara Finlayson-Pitts and John Hemminger), recently completed six months on the International Space Station.  We're excited that she has agreed to return to UCI to give another public lecture in the Beckman Auditorium to share her experiences!

Here are articles written after the event from the Orange County Register and the Riverside Press Enterprise.

The lecture begins at 7:00 pm, entitled "International Space Station Expedition 23/24:  Living Above the World at Mach 25," and the talk will be followed by a reception in the Beckman Atrium. 

Tracy gave a similar lecture in October 2007 to overflow crowds and much media coverage.  This is a wonderful opportunity for the public, including schoolchildren age 10 and older, to see an astronaut in person and learn first hand about science, space, and what it takes to be an astronaut.

Seating is limited for this event and overflow rooms with streaming live video will be provided.  View the event program
