Don't Miss Launch America with APB Speaker Mike Massimino: May 27th on Discovery Channel
26 May 2020
American astronauts on American rockets launching from American soil for the first time since 2011. This is Launch America. APB Speaker and Former NASA Astronaut Mike Massimino is excited to be a part of Discovery Channel’s live broadcast of Space Launch Live: America Returns to Space, which is in partnership with The Washington Post. The live broadcast will be on May 27th at 2:00 p.m. ET/PT and will go until the launch ends.
Massimino will be at the live broadcast to provide insights as an expert. A veteran of two space shuttle missions and four spacewalks, Massimino holds the team record for the most spacewalking time on a single space shuttle mission, and successfully completed the most complicated spacewalk ever attempted to repair the Hubble Space Telescope. He persisted through three rejections over seven years on his way to becoming an astronaut, including overcoming a medical disqualification by training his eyes and brain to see better. Massimino is the perfect example of following dreams, setting goals, and staying positive. He said, “I think it is going to be a blast of inspiration and some really good news that all of us could use at a very difficult time.”
