Astronaut Speaks To Peru Students

Posted by wlpo on September 19, 2011

A NASA astronaut is landing in Peru.

Dr. Michael Barratt will speak to students at Parkside Middle School today at 2:15.  The 20-year veteran of NASA got his start as a flight surgeon.  His first trip to space came in 2009 when he went up to the International Space Station and spent 199 days in space.

Then earlier this year Barratt went back to the space station as part of the final mission for Space Shuttle Discovery.
