Space Exploration: A chat with Retired NASA Astronaut, Michael T. Good

Space Exploration: A chat with Retired NASA Astronaut, Michael T. Good

Imagine looking upon the Earth with millions of brilliant stars in the background while you “walk“ through low Earth orbit toward the Hubble Space Telescope.

Upon arrival at the Hubble—you’re reminded of the fact that it sees 13 billion years into the “past” and can practically witness the birth of the Universe.

Join Host Craig James in a wonderment-igniting conversation with Michael T. "Bueno” Good—retired NASA Astronaut + retired Commissioned Officer in the United States Air Force.

Colonel Good has flown 30+ types of aircraft such as the F-111 and F-15… and flew aboard Space Shuttle Atlantis for STS-125 (the final Space Shuttle servicing mission to the Hubble). He was also Mission Specialist 2 on STS-132 which docked with the International Space Station for an assembly mission.

Space Exploration expands human imagination and can bridge human social, societal and political chasms. Space Exploration also serves us in our daily lives—in ways we may not realize.

Every successful Mission is a series of “consecutive miracles” Colonel Good explains. Listen-in to learn more.
