Houston, we Heard You. Astronaut Donald Pettit Attends HPLA Conference at Bishop’s Lodge – from Space!

Posted by bishopslodgemgr in Happenings

This week, General Dynamics is hosting their  2012 High Powered Laser Ablation (HPLA) conference at Bishop’s Lodge.  During the keynote address, they had a very special attendee, Astronaut Donald Pettit, who called in from the International Space Station.

Donald has been space since December of 2011. His mission was recently extended from May to July. When he’s not working, he’s playing the real life version of Angry Birds Space.
