Selected for the NASA Astronaut Corps in 1996, Donald R. Pettit ('78 B.S., Chemical Engineering) is a veteran of three spaceflights, including a six-month stay aboard the International Space Station. Pettit is celebrated for his contributions to the space program as a staff scientist and flight engineer — not the least of which is his invention of the zero-gravity coffee cup. Join us as he delivers the Octave Levenspiel Distinguished Lecture, presented by the School of Chemical, Biological, and Environmental Engineering.
The lecture is free of charge, but registration is required.
