Dr. Story Musgrave is the most formally educated American astronaut and the only one to have undertaken missions on all five shuttle orbiters (Atlantis, Challenger, Columbia, Discovery and Endeavor). He has academic degrees in such wide-ranging fields as chemistry, computer programming and literature (as well as an M.D.), and is the co-author (with Ann Lenehan) and subject of the autobiography Story: The Way of Water (a perfect topic for our partnership with GVSU's Making Waves about Water initiative). Dr. Musgrave has worked in the field of aerospace medicine, focusing on exercise and cardiovascular physiology. Other work experience includes such varied activities as working with Walt Disney Imagineering; serving as a trauma surgeon in Denver, Colorado; teaching physiology, biological physics and biological engineering at the University of Kentucky; instructing at Pasadena's Art Center College of Design; teaching sailplane aerobatics; writing; photography; and helping plan the human future in space with Applied Minds, Inc. We hope that this Valentine's Day you'll love Story as much as we do!
