Hart was aboard the STS 41-C Challenger, NASA’s eleventh Space Shuttle mission, launched from Kennedy Space Center on April 6, 1984.

The Challenger crew members logged 168 hours in orbit above the earth and were the first astronauts to repair a satellite from the shuttle. Hart operated the Remote Manipulator System (RMS) that retrieved the Solar Maximum Satellite for repairs.

He also acted as rendezvous navigator and filmed footage using an IMAX camera for the movie The Dream is Alive (1985). Terry has been a fighter pilot in the US Air Force and has held various positions in industry including member of technical staff at Bell Labs and President of Loral Skynet.

The talk will be followed by a Q&A session and is sponsored by the NCC SMaRT Scholars Program, the NCC Science Club and the NCC Engineering Club.

The event is free and open to the public. Reservations are requested.
