   Purdue University Libraries invites you to join us at Tent #2 (close to the Archway/Armstrong). Special guest and alumnus, Jerry Ross will be signing his book, “Spacewalker: My Journey in Space and Faith as NASA’s Record-Setting Frequent Flyer,” from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Books will be available to purchase from Purdue University Press for $20 per book.

Ross was the first human to fly into space seven times and set the original spacewalk record at nine for NASA astronauts. His 30+ year career at NASA spanned the entire US Space Shuttle program. Ross retired from NASA in January 2012. Read more at www.jerrylross.com
