Thanks to a recent $300,000 grant awarded to the USS Hornet Museum by the federal Office of Naval Research (ONR) to create a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) program, the museum is hosting a presentation by former NASA astronaut Daniel Bursch during Living Ship Day, this Saturday, September 12th.

Bursch has completed four space flights, and in 2002, Bursch and Carl Walz made the longest U.S. space flight to date, serving 196 days aboard the International Space Station. Bursch has logged more than 227 days in space.

At 1pm on Saturday, on board the USS Hornet, Bursch will give a presentation and talk about his career and his inspiration to join the space program, his being aim to spark youth interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

“It is an honor for the USS Hornet Museum to host American Astronaut Dan Bursch as part of Heroes and Patriots Week,” said Heidi Schave, USS Hornet Education Director. “By enabling Bay Area families and their children to learn from such an accomplished astronaut and flight engineer, we not only celebrate one of today’s great heroes, but we also inspire our nation’s future heroes in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.”

Kids 17 and under enjoy free admission to the Hornet on the day of the event.
