Tom Jones

Tom Jones knows the moon, man. The author of Sky Walking: An Astronaut’s Memoir has been in the space business for nearly two decades. Not only has Jones ventured into infinity and beyond four times, he was around for the launch of the Hubble, the construction of the space station and the Columbia tragedy. Today, he’ll discuss these experiences and how they affect astronauts, their families and the future of space travel. He’ll also sign copies of Sky Walking after the lecture. 6:30 p.m. Houston Museum of Natural Science, One Hermann Circle Drive.
