Viterbi School of Engineering Alumni
As part of USC Reunion Weekend, USC Viterbi is hosting a special breakout event on Friday, October 18 from 2:00-2:50 featuring NASA astronaut and USC professor Garrett Reisman.
As 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, Dr. Reisman will recount the real-life intrigue, dangers and constant excitement that were a daily part of his career in space.
Dr. Reisman was selected by NASA as a mission specialist astronaut in 1998. His first mission was aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour, in 2008, which dropped him off for a 95-day mission aboard the International Space Station after which he returned to Earth aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery. His second mission was aboard the Space Shuttle Atlantis, in 2010, which returned him to the Space Station.
During these missions, Dr. Reisman performed three spacewalks, operated the Space Station Robot Arm and was a flight engineer aboard the Space Shuttle. After leaving NASA in 2011, Dr. Reisman joined SpaceX, which he prepared for human spaceflight as the Director of Space Operations. Currently he is a professor of astronautical engineering at USC, and he continues his work at SpaceX as a senior advisor.
