The Rice Northwest Museum of Rocks and Minerals is pleased to announce famed astronaut Story Musgrave will be speaking on October 26, 2019 regarding the importance of STEM education. The event will be held in the OMSI Planetarium. Musgrave will relate his own inspirational story, from a challenging upbringing to becoming the only person to personally fly on all of NASA’s five shuttle craft. He is best-known as the lead spacewalker to repair the Hubble Telescope.

The evening begins with a VIP Reception at 5:30. The VIP reception is an intimate meet-and-greet with Story Musgrave, and tickets include an autographed copy of his book, “The NASA Northrop T-38,” and the opportunity to have your photo taken with Dr. Musgrave in addition to the main event.

The event begins at 6:30, with a hosted bar and hors d’oeuvres and silent auction featuring spectacular fine minerals. At 7:30, the silent auction will close and guests will proceed into the planetarium for a live auction, one hour presentation from Story Musgrave, and special appeal supporting the Rice Museum’s educational programs. The event concludes at 9:00 PM.
