Please join Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in welcoming author Meredith Bagby and contributor veteran NASA astronaut Anna Fisher for a book signing of "The New Guys: The Historic Class of Astronauts That Broke Barriers and Changed the Face of Space Travel" in Shuttle Express on June 17.
About The New Guys:
In 1978, NASA announced its first class of civilian astronauts, opening its ranks to candidates beyond white male fighter pilots. Among them were: the first American woman, African American, Asian American, Jewish person, mother, LGBTQ+ person, and married couple.
Now, in “THE NEW GUYS: The Historic Class of Astronauts That Broke Barriers and Changed the Face of Space Travel,” Meredith Bagby shares the never-before-told stories of “the new guys,” (a nickname given by their military predecessors), a class of pioneers who shattered glass ceilings, overcame racial barriers, and literally changed the face of space travel.
A limited amount of books will be available for purchase inside Shuttle Express. Bagby and Fisher will only be signing their book.
