Astronaut bringing East Tennessee closer to space

Local News

Space is closer than you think – especially if you have a NASA astronaut to guide you. 

Astronaut Mark T. Vande Hei, who spent almost 6 months aboard the International Space Station (ISS) and made four spacewalks, will be speaking at Pellissippi State Community College on Thursday. 

While Vande Hei got up close and personal with the cosmos, he says space itself is a lot closer than we think.

He plans to explain how at his free presentation at the college. Vande Hei will be speaking at the Pellissippi State Community College in the Clayton Performing Arts Center on Thursday, April 4 at 12:25 p.m.
