On Thursday 5th September 2013, Wick Youth Club will be holding a SPACE EVENING when we will be visited by former American astronaut, Duane Carey who piloted a 2002 mission onboard the space shuttle Columbia to upgrade the Hubble Space Telescope. The astronaut spent ten days in space orbiting the earth 165 times and travelled over 3.9 million miles on what was to be Columbia's last complete mission.

Many parents will have heard all about Duane from their children as he has visited local schools before. Now is the time for you to come along with your children and meet the man for yourself. Duane will be giving a talk on his humble beginnings growing up in housing projects of St Paul in Minnesota in a one parent family. He will then discus his education, his United States Air Force career and his training and jounrey to the Hubble Space Telescope as a Space Shuttle Pilot.

5th September 2013 at Wick Youth Club from 6:30pm to 7:30pm. A night for all the family to enjoy..
