A former astronaut and Vietnam veteran will speak at Texas Tech this week.

Colonel Mike Mullane will speak at 7 p.m. Thursday as part of the Vietnam Center and Archive Guest Lecture Series. The event will be held in the Lanier Auditorium at the Texas Tech School of Law located at 18th Street and Hartford.

Mullane, a 1967 graduate of West Point, was commissioned in the United States Air Force and served as a weapon systems operator aboard an RF-4C Phantom, completing 150 combat missions in Vietnam.

He was selected as a mission specialist for the first group of Space Shuttle astronauts in 1978, completed three space missions, and logged 356 hours in space before retiring in 1990.

Mullane has received a number of awards, including the Air Force Distinguished Flying Cross, Legion of Merit, and the NASA Space Flight Medal. He has also been inducted into the International Space Hall of Fame.

This is the final event in this year’s series of speakers hosted by the Vietnam Center and Archive.
