Media advisory: NASA astronaut, alumnus to give lecture

Wed, 04/30/2014

What: Joe Engle, NASA astronaut and 1955 University of Kansas alumnus, will give a presentation at the Lawrence campus. Engle flew two space shuttle missions and is the only person to manually fly the shuttle from re-entering the atmosphere to landing. He also served as a test pilot on the X-15, a rocket-powered aircraft that set flight speed and height records in the early 1960s. See more on his career here.

When: 4 p.m., Friday, May 2. Media should begin arriving at 3:45 p.m. 

Where:  Spahr Engineering Classroom, Eaton Hall, 1520 W. 15th St. The event is free, but space is limited, so tickets are required to attend. Media need to register in advance to ensure space is reserved.

Why: Engle's presentation to aerospace engineering students and faculty is part of the 70th anniversary celebration of KU’s aerospace engineering department. 

To register or for other information, contact Cody Howard, 785-864-2936, codyh@ku.edu; or Jill Hummels, 785-864-2934, jhummels@ku.edu.
