Astronaut Quilter

Murray, KY – Retired astronaut Dr. Jan Davis went to work as an aerospace engineer for NASA'a Marshall Space Flight Center in 1979, and she wound up logging nearly 700 hours in space. She's also a quilter. Dr. Davis talks about space travel Thursday, October 18th at 6:30 at WKCTC's Clemens Fine Arts Center. October 19th she visits with school groups at the National Quilting Museum in the morning and hosts a gallery discussion involving her own quilts and space in the afternoon. Dr. Davis tells Kate Lochte that she anticipates most adult questions but not the ones that kids ask.
