Former NASA astronaut Dr. Steven Hawley has a new job to add to his already impressive resume--advisor to the Board of Directors at the Kansas Cosmosphere.
"We are thrilled and honored to have Dr. Hawley as an official advisor to the Cosmosphere," said Cosmosphere CEO Dick Hollowell.
Hawley will advise the Cosmosphere's Leadership teams as well as the Governing Board of Governors. Further, Hawley will help to further the space museum's mission of preserving space history, inspiring future space exploration and inspiring future space explorers.
"I'm proud to have such a unique facility in my home state, and I look forward to working closely with the Cosmosphere to increase awareness of this tremendous asset to Kansas and the nation. It is my belief that the Cosmosphere can provide the spark that inspires our next generation of leaders and visionaries who will do the difficult and pioneering thing that make this nation great," Hawley said.
Dr. Hawley currently is a professor of physics at the University of Kansas. Hawley retired from NASA in 2008 after serving in several different capacities, which included spending more than 770 hours in space.
