“An Astronaut’s Perspective on Human Spaceflight—Past, Present, and Future”

Commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.

Stephen K. Robinson spent 37 years at NASA, where he served as a technician, research scientist, manager, engineer, and astronaut. During his 17 years as a NASA astronaut, Dr. Robinson flew on four space shuttle missions (completing three spacewalks), visited the International Space Station twice, trained as a cosmonaut in Star City, Russia, and developed extensive expertise in spacecraft systems, human/systems integration, operational safety, space robotics, aerodynamics, and fluid physics. Robinson is now a professor in the University of California Davis Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department. He also directs the UC Davis Center for Human-Systems Engineering, where students pursue research in human spaceflight, aviation safety, human/ automation/robotic integration, human performance, automation and control, and CubeSat and UAV applications.

Dr. Robinson is an active pilot, an artist, and a musician. He currently plays with the mostly-astronaut band Bandella, and the all-astronaut rock band, Max Q.

Free and open to the public. No tickets required, but seating is limited and on a first-come, first-served basis. Parking is available in B and C lots only. Parking in any other campus lot requires a permit. For special accommodations, please contact the Office of the Provost at 937-229-2245.
