Amazing speaker! He covered a lot of his book in short amount of time. He was truly extraordinary. Additionally, I enjoyed having the panel questions from students. Wish he could speak more technically to the effects of a Year in Space but perhaps he is unable to.

It was so good. I was so happy to have been able to see him speak.

Scott was very fluid and entertaining in his presentation. He spoke on his trials from birth to becoming an astronaut, and key or anomalous events that happened in between. He accepted online question from the audience after giving his talk.
