Josh Cassada, '95, part of NASA's eight-member astronaut candidate class of 2013, describes his training experience to date in a video feature the space agency released on YouTube late last week. The former Navy test pilot, who received his Ph.D. in high-energy physics from the University of Rochester, also talks about his Albion experience. "It was there that I got my first taste of collaborative learning and peer mentorship—and exploration, really," says Cassada, who received the College's Distinguished Alumni Award in 2012.
