The informal ‘meet and greet’ for the Crew-4 International Space Station astronauts at the Cosmos Club was attended by about 40, many of whom were scientists with their families who wanted to meet an astronaut. After a 20 minute narrated video from the astronauts, four NASA/UMD scientists with GSW & Cosmos Club experience (Killen, Kirschbaum, Cohen and Martos) gave short (4 minute) presentations to the astronauts about topics that have direct relevance to the return of humans to the Moon. The astronauts responded with interest, and good questions. At the end of the meeting the astronauts presented a plaque to the Cosmos Club and GSW.
Apologies that we couldn't tweet out the details for the other two speakers last night, there was some error preventing folks from posting, including us. A frustrating bug when we want to promote everyone in our lineup equally but we'll try again next time!
