Astronaut Keynote Speaker Mike Mullane to Make Appearance on the Science Channel

Posted by Alexis Washington

Team Building keynote speaker Mike Mullane will be featured on The Science Channel’s series “Secret Space Escapes,” premiering on November 10th at 10 p.m. Building upon his expertise, Mike Mullane shares his wealth of knowledge which he experienced on STS-27…the second mission after the Challenger disaster.

“During the launch of that mission, our heat shield tiles were extensively damaged and we narrowly missed destruction during the 3000 degree reentry (the press release says “5000 degrees”, which is an error),” says Mullane. “I’ve attached some photos of the damage.  After landing, NASA had to replace 700 of the tiles, by far the most serious heat shield damage before Columbia was lost in 2003 due to its heat shield damage.”

This television program allows users to catch a glimpse of astronauts exploring outer space, experiencing life threatening challenges and overcoming near death experiences. Through the telling of their first hand accounts, viewers get to ride on the exhilarating roller coaster that is a matter of life and death for these unique individuals.
