An astronaut, the first person to tweet from space, a recurring character on The Big Bang Theory, and now a New York Times bestselling author, Dr. Mike Massimino grew up a working class kid whose seemingly unreachable dream of becoming an astronaut and flying in space was realized through determination, commitment, and hard work—and with humor. After two missions to the Hubble Telescope and four spacewalks to make critical repairs to the telescope, Dr. Massimino is now a Columbia University professor; the Senior Space Advisor to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum; an author; a television host; a frequent guest on morning shows, news programs, talk shows, and late-night television; and an in-demand speaker for audiences seeking a unique perspective on teamwork, innovation, and leadership from a down-to-earth spaceman.
