Exploring Legends Interview featuring Leroy Chiao FN'05

From 1994-2005, Leroy Chiao FN’05 visited the International Space Station four separate times, three via Shuttle flights and one courtesy of a Soyuz rocket. As such Chiao, 53, is one of the few astronauts who can compare flying with the Russians to flying with the U.S., and he will do so on the other end of interviewer Jim Clash’s FR’99 questions. Chiao, chair of The Explorers Club’s Space Advisory Committee, will also discuss his Chinese-American roots and offer thoughts on China’s developing space program. He will give opinions on future flights to Mars and whether we should send humans back to the moon first. After the interview, as is customary, Clash will open questions to audience members. Don’t miss a rare live chat with this esteemed astronaut.
