Emerson Hosts NASA Astronaut at Employee Day
Emerson Climate Technologies, a business of Emerson, in partnership with the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force, recently hosted a visit by active NASA Astronaut Colonel Gregory Johnson.
Colonel Johnson presented a first-hand account of space travel before an audience of more than 460 people, including Emerson employees and their families, museum staff, volunteers, and members of the Museum Friends group.
The event was part of the “Emerson Employees Coming Together” event for employees. A retired test pilot with the U.S. Air Force, Col. Johnson served as the pilot of the March 2008 Endeavor space shuttle mission, which was the 25th to launch to the International Space Station. He has also been selected to pilot space shuttle mission STS-134, scheduled for July, 2010.
Colonel Johnson answered questions and signed autographs. The inspiring presentation was the culmination of a fun and engaging family day for Emerson Climate Technologies' employees and museum participants. The event included an IMAX show and luncheon, as well as the opportunity to explore the museum.
