To The Moon & Back: Speaker Mike Massimino

Passionate. Engaging. Spectacular. Just a few of the superlatives offered by corporate clients about former NASA astronaut, author and inspirational speaker Mike Massimino.

Audiences are quick to recognize Massimino—now a professor at Columbia University—from his many television appearances. Mike has guested on the Today Show, CNN, Neil deGrasse Tyson’s “Star Talk,” and Late Night with David Letterman, and even has a recurring role as himself on CBS’s “The Big Bang Theory.” Mike’s book, Spaceman: An Astronaut’s Unlikely Journey to Unlock the Secrets of the Universe, is a New York Times bestseller.

After two missions to the Hubble telescope and four spacewalks, you can bet that Massimino has some remarkable stories to tell. With an engaging combination of enthusiasm, candor and wit, this down-to-earth space traveler entertains and enthralls his listeners with tales of his NASA career. But what audiences find most compelling are the enduring lessons of teamwork, dedication and leadership drawn from Mike’s experiences.
