Florida State Alumnus and NASA Astronaut Has Book Signing

By  | 

A Florida State alumnus and NASA astronaut has released a new book and was in town for a book signing event.

Captain Winston Scott met with his readers and signed copies of his book, "Reflections From Earth Orbit" at the Challenger Learning Center.

He says the book is about his life in space with reflections to his life on Earth, and it's receiving good reviews.

"It's not a typical autobiography or a typical ‘how do you go to the bathroom in space’ book. It's a book about space that I think anybody can enjoy regardless of what your interests are or regardless of what your background is," Scott says.

Scott says he's planning to write a follow up to this book. Scott is a 1972 graduate of Florida State and also served as the university's vice president of student affairs.
