Former astronaut Michael Foreman visited a few select schools, including Yuma High, on Thursday.

Foreman talked about his courageous space missions that contributed to the space station we know today. Students from sixth and seventh period math and science classes as well as engineering, AP science, AVID, and others, were invited to attend a video presentation as well as a personal Q&A with Foreman.

Foreman, a space walker, elaborated on his mission known as STS-129, a special task that assisted in the building of a space station consisting of six members, including himself. He showed footage of the mission in space, documenting his spacewalks and his crew’s inner workings on the ship. He also gave useful information on the processes of becoming an astronaut and the physical training to be expected.

The event ended with students and teachers being permitted to ask Foreman questions ranging from sleeping and space suits to toilets and training, leaving all with an unforgettable experience.
