To infinity and BEYOND!

Free lecture by Steve Hawley, five-time NASA astronaut and KU professor

Just got this from KU:

Come meet KU's only astronaut professor! The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is kicking off a new interactive lecture series with a free presentation from Steve Hawley, five-time NASA astronaut and KU professor. In his presentation, “My Life with the Hubble Space Telescope,” Dr. Hawley will share his experiences in space, his perspective as a NASA insider, and his unique space memorabilia.

This lecture, which is part of the new College of Liberal Arts and Sciences-sponsored CLAS ACTS series, is free and open to the public. The community, alumni and friends are encouraged to join us this Sunday, Sept. 14, from 2 to 4 p.m. at Spooner Hall on the KU campus in Lawrence. Seating for the free lecture will be limited and available only to ticket-holders. Free tickets are available at the public library in downtown Lawrence. For those out of town, tickets can be sent via e-mail. Parents are encouraged to bring their children. If you have any questions about the lecture or obtaining free tickets, contact Jessica Beeson at 785-864-1767 or

This event is the first of eight monthly presentations, which will touch on a wide range of subjects, encompassing immigration policies, monsters, childhood obesity and more. All presentations take place on Sundays from 2 to 4 p.m.

See you Sunday!

Sounds cool!
