It’s commencement time for many Big Ten universities, and the words being shared with graduates have been powerful and inspiring.
Purdue does not usually devote a full day to school pride and fundraising. But when it does, it prefers a spectacle.
Purdue University graduates have walked on the moon, worked in the Mir Space Station, and flown the Shuttle. They also have contributed many others who work at NASA or in the burgeoning private space programs. And eight of the Purdue astronauts came back on campus to talk about their careers and experiences.
