Albion College has a full-fledged astronaut among its alumni. Last week, Josh Cassada, '95, was one of eight men and women to complete two years of training as a candidate and become an official member of the NASA astronaut corps.
The former Navy test pilot majored in physics at Albion and received his Ph.D. from the University of Rochester. He received Albion's Distinguished Alumni Award in 2012.
