Vance Brand: Flying Higher and Faster


Longmont Museum and Cultural Center
400 Quail Rd.
Longmont, CO 80501

At nearly a mile high, Longmont’s elevation is impressive by terrestrial standards—but Boulder County native Vance Brand has traveled 160 miles higher. The former NASA astronaut logged 746 hours in space during his three-decade career, and he returns home to discuss everything from his Colorado childhood to his space career and the future of aerospace science. Stick around after the talk to meet the spaceman and snag a signed copy of his autobiography.
