The College of Engineering will be hosting Fred Gregory for a lecture and Astronaut Scholar Foundation presentation on October 19.
When: Wednesday, October 19 | 7 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Where: Duke Energy Hall -- James B. Hunt Jr. Library | NC State Centennial Campus

Frederick D. Gregory was born in Washington, D.C., in 1941, and received a Bachelor of Science degree from the U.S. Air Force Academy in 1964 and a Master’s degree in Information Sciences from George Washington University in 1977.
Following graduation from the Air Force Academy, Gregory took helicopter training, earned his wings in 1965 and served initial assignments as an H-43 helicopter rescue pilot at Vance AFB, Okla., and at Danang Air Base in Vietnam.
Gregory’s first space assignment was as pilot of Space Shuttle Challenger, which soared into orbit in 1985 with a crew of seven and the European Spacelab, a pressurized 23-foot laboratory positioned in the cargo bay. The crew had plenty of company – 24 rats and two squirrel monkeys who were to become real nuisances. Read More.
