SEATTLE, Jan. 28, 2019—On Feb. 2, astronaut Greg “Ray J” Johnson will talk about his adventures as a NASA pilot flying everything from the space shuttle on the final Hubble telescope serving mission, to the bulbous Super Guppy that delivered the shuttle trainer to The Museum of Flight. He will also talk about his new work with Blue Origin. A Seattle native, Johnson attended West Seattle High School and University of Washington, and later served at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island as a Navy pilot before his career with NASA. The 2:30 p.m. program is free with Museum admission.
Children to Meet Two Astronauts at the Museum for Special Day
Greg Johnson joins astronaut Dottie Metcalf-Lindenberger that day as a mentor during the Museum’s Michael P. Anderson Memorial Aerospace Program—an annual event that gives Washington state underserved middle school children a chance to meet aerospace professionals and enjoy the Museum's educational programs. The program is inspired by Air Force officer Michael P. Anderson. As a NASA astronaut Anderson perished in the space shuttle Columbia disaster in 2003.
