MELBOURNE, FLA.—Join former astronaut, Captain Winston Scott, as he compares Hollywood’s depiction of space travel, in such recent movies as Gravity, with his own experiences in space Jan. 16 at 6 p.m. His lecture is the first of the year in the Florida Institute of Technology Lifelong Scholar Society lecture series. Scott served as a mission specialist for two U.S. space shuttle missions and conducted three space walks.
A retired Navy captain, Scott is Florida Tech’s senior vice president of external relations and economic development, and a frequent community speaker.
The lecture will be held at the Harris Community Auditorium, next door to the Foosaner Art Museum in downtown Eau Gallie.
Tickets for each lecture are $20; $10 for members. The Lifelong Scholar Society is now offering a yearly membership for $35, which includes half priced tickets to lectures, three dinners at Panther Dining, and a custom name tag. Tickets include a slice of freshly baked pie from Joan’s Perfect Pies located in downtown Eau Gallie at each lecture; refreshments will be served during the 30-minute Q & A discussion segment.
