A View From Space
Former Astronaut Visits Mesquite High
Aerospace engineering students at Mesquite High School got an amazing opportunity on Thursday, to meet and question Astronaut Frank L. Culbertson.
Mr. Culbertson, a former NASA Astronaut and a retired U.S. Navy Captain, spent an hour giving students a first hand look at what it takes to be among the very few who achieve the out of this world experience.
He was aboard the International Space Station during the September 11th attacks and showed students the images he captured from his unique vantage point. His friend and former classmate Charles Burlingame was the pilot of the plane that terrorists crashed into the Pentagon.
Mr. Culbertson offered students advice on reaching for the stars, whether it’s a career in aerospace or using the tools in everyday life.
He is now the Executive Vice President and General Manager of the Advanced Programs Group at Orbital.
As students in one East Valley school district head back to class Wednesday, they have a new superintendent looking out for their interests.
