Space Travel. NASA astronaut Reid Wiseman, who spent 165 days living and working aboard the International Space Station, and gained a large following on social media while sharing the wonders of space exploration, will visit his hometown of Baltimore Feb. 10-12 for several public events.

At 11:30 a.m. EST Tuesday, Feb. 10, Wiseman will receive a Baltimore County Hero pin at the Historic Courthouse in Towson, Maryland.

At 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 11, Wiseman will visit the Maryland Science Center in Baltimore to talk with visitors and answer questions about his experience in space.

Wiseman will visit the Sharpsburg Library at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 12, to talk to members of the public about his mission.

Wiseman began his long-duration stay aboard the orbiting laboratory in May 2014 and returned to Earth in November 2014. In that time, he fostered a strong social media presence sharing striking photos, personal tweets and short videos about life aboard the space station.

Wiseman and his crewmates spent hundreds of hours conducting valuable scientific research in areas such as human physiology, medicine, physical science, Earth science and astrophysics.

Wiseman’s mission aboard the space station was his first spaceflight and included almost 13 hours of spacewalking to perform work outside the orbital complex. Wiseman earned a bachelor’s degree from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York, and a master’s degree in systems engineering from The Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.
