November 30: Out of this World Luncheon with Astronaut Mike Mullane

You are invited to join the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History, in partnership with the Construction Financial Management Association, for an "Out of this World" Luncheon presenting Albuquerque’s Astronaut Mike Mullane as he delivers a hard-hitting, substantive teamwork and leadership motivational discussion at the Sheraton Uptown on Thursday, November 30, at 11:30 am.

This one-time-only event - open to the public but with limited seating – will showcase Astronaut Mullane as he discusses three fundamentals of leadership and teamwork, pulling from his own incredible experiences working for NASA as an integral part of America’s space program. Leaders from all over the community will benefit from this intriguing discussion as Mullane warns about “Guarding Against a ‘Normalization of Deviance’, Responsibility and Courageous Self-Leadership”.

Topics such as the Challenger tragedy and Mullane’s own story of how he narrowly escaped death by ejecting from a crashing jet will be discussed in this remarkably educational, motivating and, at times, incredibly humorous event.

“Success isn’t a final destination,” said Astronaut Mullane. “It’s a continuous life journey of working toward successively higher goals for yourself and your teams.”

Astronaut Mullane was born in Texas but spent much of his youth in Albuquerque, where he currently resides. Upon his graduation from West Point in 1967, he was commissioned in the United States Air Force, completing 134 combat missions in Vietnam. He holds a Master’s of Science Degree in Aeronautical Engineering from the Air Force Institute of Technology and was selected as a Mission Specialist in 1978 in the first group of Space Shuttle Astronauts. He completed three space missions aboard the Shuttles Discovery (STS-41D) and Atlantis (STS-27 and 36).

Since his retirement from NASA, Mullane has written several successful books, and his very popular memoir, Riding Rockets: The Outrageous Tales of a Space Shuttle Astronaut, will be available to purchase following the event with the opportunity to have it autographed by Astronaut Mullane.

This very special event is open to the public at $50 per guest to enjoy lunch and Astronaut Mullane’s program. Doors open at 11:00 am at Sheraton Uptown Hotel on Thursday, November 30, 2017, and lunch will begin at 11:30 am. Seating is very limited, and all tickets can be purchased below.
