Day of Discovery is returning to LMU on Sunday, November 6th. This free community event hosted by LMU and LAX Community Relations will welcome local residents and students to campus to learn about the aerospace and aviation industries through various exhibits, activities, and a special talk by NASA Astronaut, Dr. Anna Fisher.
Dr. Fisher is a 38-year veteran with NASA and the first mother to fly in space. She served as a mission specialist aboard the orbiter Discovery during the second of its 39 missions in November 1984. The mission is noted as being the first space salvage mission when the crew retrieved two satellites. The mission completed 127 earth orbits and Fisher logged a total of 192 hours in space.
In addition to Dr. Fisher’s talk, Day of Discovery will also feature an aviation and aerospace expo, focused break-out sessions covering a range of topics, and a special STEM science challenge for local middle school and high school students. Presented by Boeing, the science challenge will provide students with the opportunity work with Boeing engineers and LMU engineering students to develop and test water transport satellites.
