Tracy Caldwell Dyson, a former postdoctoral chemistry scholar at UC Irvine, returns to share her experiences living and working aboard the International Space Station for six months. This is a wonderful opportunity for the public, including children 10 and older, to see an astronaut in person and learn firsthand about science, space and what it takes to be an astronaut.
