Breakfast With an Astronaut

Posted: Updated:
Boy Scouts in the Northwest Texas Council had breakfast with an astronaut on Thursday morning.

Former NASA Astronaut Dr. Greg Chamitoff visited with the boy scouts at Luby’s in Wichita Falls.

Chamitoff logged more than 198 days in space during his career and helped build the International Space Station.  He was also a boy scout when he was younger and said the organization had a big impact on his life.

Thursday’s breakfast was the kickoff for the Friends of Scouting Campaign.  It’s a large fundraiser for the scouts.
