Wisdom from Space

Living in a state that experiences the four seasons, we’ve seen the peace and power of what nature can bring. A former astronaut has seen it from another viewpoint. Story Musgrave is the featured speaker at this weekend’s Wyoming State FIRST Lego League Robotics Championship. Carrying on the League’s theme of “Nature’s Fury,” Dr. Musgrave will share his out-of-this world experience beginning at 6 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 6, 2013 at the Casper Events Center.

He is a highly decorated veteran of the U.S. Marines and NASA and holds several national awards.
