An evening with NASA astronaut Kjell Lindgren

What’s it like to explore space? Join Anythink for a special evening with NASA astronaut Kjell Lindgren to find out. Dr. Lindgren has logged 141 days in space, including more than 15 hours of spacewalking – activities performed outside of the spacecraft. During this time, he’s conducted a variety of scientific experiments, including the “Veggie” lettuce experiment, where U.S. astronauts ate crops grown in orbit for the very first time. Dr. Lindgren joins us back on Earth at Anythink York Street to share his adventures.
