EXPERT NIGHT @ OMSI with NASA Astronaut Dr. Michael Barratt.
All members of registered FIRST teams in Oregon and SW Washington are welcome to attend this event.
FIRST LEGO League team members will have first priority for tickets because of their Into Orbit research project.
Thanks to help from OMSI, we have a very special guest coming for this year’s expert night, so special we are making not only 2 nights, but two sessions each night so that EVERY FIRST LEGO League TEAM can attend. Our Keynote Expert is none other than NASA Astronaut Dr. Michael Barratt!
Dr. Michael R. Barratt was selected by NASA in 2000. Board certified in Internal and Aerospace Medicine, he has participated in two spaceflights. In 2009, Dr. Barratt served as Flight Engineer for Expedition 19/20. This marked the transition from three to six permanent International Space Station crew members. During this time, he performed two spacewalks. He also flew on STS-133, which delivered the Permanent Multipurpose Module and fourth Express Logistics Carrier. Currently, Dr. Barratt serves in the International Space Station Operations and Integration branches to handle medical issues and onorbit support.
