tas2.jpgThomas Stoffregen, Ph.D., professor in the School of Kinesiology, gave a presentation to a class of sixth-grade students at Brimhall Elementary School, in Roseville, MN. In his talk, "Going to work in space," he described his experiences and research at the Kennedy Spaceflight Center where he has worked in Launch Control during the development of the space shuttle.

He also has experience at both the Goddard Spaceflight Center and the Johnson Space Center. While at Goddard, he was key in helping design the International Space Station, and he worked with astronauts on problems of human perceptual-motor control in weightlessness while at the Johnson Space Center.
