CSU hosts hometown astronaut Michael Good

Cleveland State University hosted Astronaut Michael Good as part of a program of events for the CSU Campus Park Community. 
 
“Michael Good is a tremendous example of how hard work and dedication can help make your dreams come true,” noted Anette Karlsson, dean of the Washkewicz College of Engineering and co-organizer of the event. “We are honored to host him on campus so he can provide insights and advice to our next generation of leaders.”
 
A NASA astronaut and retired colonel in the United States Air Force, Good was born in Parma but considers Broadview Heights his hometown. He flew aboard Space Shuttle Atlantis for its STS-125 and STS -132 missions, serving as a mission specialist and conducting four space walks. On top of repairs and updates to the Hubble Telescope, Good’s service in space includes seven days aboard the International Space Station. 
 
Colonel Good participated in a tour of the new Campus International Lower School and presented to students from Campus International High School, MC2 STEM High School and Cleveland State. COSHP’s Society of Physics Students (SPS) directed hands-on outreach activities for the children as a part of the event.
