FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) - A retired NASA astronaut visited IPFW on Wednesday night to teach people about the wonders of space.
Col. Jerry Ross took part in seven space missions during his career. His last was in 2002, helping to build the International Space Station.
"I had this sensation that I was doing exactly what God had designed me to do," Ross says. "It was a great feeling, great cofirmation that i'd made right decisions throughout my life."
Ross also discussed his recent book, Spacewalker: My Journey In Space & Faith As NASA's Record-Setting Frequent Flyer, and answered questions from the audience.
Ross, 65, is a native of Crown Point, Ind., and graduated from Purdue University and also served as an Air Force pilot in the 1970s.
