Dare to Dream: Story Musgrave
For Story Musgrave, dreams are rocket fuel and not even the sky is a limit. Born on a Massachusetts dairy farm in 1935, he blazed a trail into space on six spaceflights as a NASA astronaut. Story performed the first shuttle spacewalk on Challenger’s maiden flight, was the lead spacewalker on the Hubble Telescope repair mission, and served as mission control communicator for 25 missions. Story also holds graduate degrees in math, computers, chemistry, medicine, physiology, and literature. Today, he is a multimedia producer/director, a landscape architect, an innovator with Applied Minds Inc., and this year’s Jack W. Thompson, M.D. Distinguished Visiting Professor at UM-Flint.
