Since 2009, Barb Tewksbury has been part of a very small cadré of geologists who have been responsible for geology training for newly selected NASA astronauts. In this talk, Tewksbury will take you inside the current geology training program and what it’s like to work with astronauts both in the classroom at Johnson Spaceflight Center in Houston and in the field on the Taos Plateau in New Mexico.
Barbara Tewksbury is the Upson Chair of Public Discourse and Professor of Geosciences.
