The Citadel Space Star
Veteran NASA astronaut, Col. Randy Bresnik, USMC (Ret.), is one of The Citadel’s most visible principled leaders in the history of the college. The 1989 alumnus will serve as flight engineer July 28 on a mission to the International Space Station (ISS). He and two crewmates will launch to the ISS from Russia on the Russian Soyuz MS-05 at the estimated time of 11:41 a.m. EDT. While on the ISS, Bresnik will assume command of the ISS when the operation transitions to Expedition 53.
