NASA Astronaut Spends Morning with Prep Students

A once-in-a-lifetime experience for many Sandia Prep community members: Harrison "Jack" Schmitt, a retired NASA astronaut and one of only 12 people to have walked on the moon, spoke at Prep this morning about his incredible experience as a member of the Apollo 17 mission.

As one of the last six living "moon-walkers," Schmitt answered questions from Prep's enthusiastic students (and faculty) about everything from colonizing Mars to what it feels like to walk on the moon at 1/6th Earth's gravity.
