Former NASA astronaut visits SDSU

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - San Diego State University Thursday welcomed a former astronaut to talk about life in space.

Joseph Tanner is a former NASA astronaut and currently a professor at the University of Colorado, Boulder.

His focus Thursday was on the challenges of assembling the International Space Station while in space.

"It's such a huge structure. And you couldn't just put it up in one piece. Had to go up in multiple sections. That was a real engineering, cooperative, international and national challenge," Tanner said.

His visit is part of a lecture series hosts by the university's chapter of American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.
