Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point Images

Oct 12, 2016

Lt. Col. Nicole “Duke” Mann hosts a seminar aboard Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, N.C., Oct. 11, 2016. The seminar was open to all Marines aboard the air station. Mann covered many topics including her background, the path she took to become an astronaut, what NASA is accomplishing currently and what the future holds for potential astronauts. “I’ve been to Cherry Point many times, but only when refueling,” said Mann. “It’s amazing to be back around Marines because NASA is a lot different from the Marine Corps. So it’s a breath of fresh air to hang out with some of the Marines here and talk to them about what it takes to become an astronaut.” Mann is currently the Marine Corps’ only active duty astronaut.
