The Final Frontier: A Conversation with Astronaut Susan Helms

June 10, 2016

The lure of exploration, particularly of the “final frontier,” continues to fuel the imagination of humankind. And many advances in science and technology have resulted from space exploration as well. Wilson Center Board of Trustees member Susan Helms has logged 5,064 hours in space, including a world record spacewalk of nearly 9 hours. She shares reflections of her time off planet and her thoughts on the future of space travel and exploration with host John Milewski in this special edition of Wilson Center NOW.
