The technology and research being done in space is not only impressive but also extremely relevant to life here on Earth. Few people on the planet know this more than Nick Hague, an astronaut who has conducted three spacewalks and spent 203 days in space. In this live event, you can learn what it is like to live in space, the technologies and research currently being tested on the International Space Station, and how this type of research can help entrepreneurs aiming to build transformative technologies.
ABOUT TYLER HAGUE
Tyler N. “Nick” Hague was selected by NASA as an astronaut in 2013. The Kansas native earned a B.S. in Astronautical Engineering from the United States Air Force Academy in 1998, and a Master of Science in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2000. In 2009, Hague was selected for the Air Force Fellows program in Washington, D.C., and was a staff member in the United States Senate. Following his fellowship, he served in the Pentagon as a congressional appropriations liaison for United States Central Command.

He was selected for a mission to the International Space Station which launched on October 11, 2018. Unfortunately, he and his crewmate Alexey Ovchinin, of the Russian space agency Roscosmos, were forced to abort the mission when a rocket booster experienced a malfunction shortly after the launch of their Soyuz MS-10. The aborted spacecraft landed safely.
Hague most recently served as Flight Engineer on the International Space Station for Expedition 59 and 60. During his mission, the crew conducted or participated in hundreds of experiments in biology, biotechnology, physical science and Earth science, including investigations into devices that mimic the structure and function of human organs, free-flying robots, and an instrument to measure Earth’s distribution of carbon dioxide. Hague conducted three spacewalks during his mission, totaling 19 hours and 56 minutes with a total of 203 days in space.
