NASA Astronaut Stephanie Wilson.

NASA astronaut Stephanie Wilson is headed to the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center for two free talks. Co-sponsored by the Mahaiwe and Flying Cloud Institute, the Berkshire-raised astronaut will be in Great Barrington on Friday (October 2) at 10am (school field trip) and 7pm.

Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center Executive Director Beryl Jolly reports that “We have had enthusiastic interest from across Berkshire County for these appearances and eagerly look forward to these unique presentations about her extraordinary education, training, and multiple missions in outer space.”

A 1984 graduate of Pittsfield‘s Taconic High School, Wilson has logged more than 42 days in space as a veteran of three space flights (STS-121 in 2006, STS-120 in 2007, and STS-131 in 2010), serving as flight engineer and robotic arm operator.
