Space Station Astronaut talks with his Alma Mater

Aboard the International Space Station, Expedition 38 Flight Engineer Koichi Wakata of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency relived old memories with students and instructors from his alma mater, Kyushu University in Japan and officials from the Fukuoka Prefecture during an in-flight event Feb. 4. Wakata received a doctorate degree in aeronautical engineering from Kyushu in 2004. The veteran astronaut, who arrived at the station in early November, will become the first Japanese commander of the complex in March for two months during the Expedition 39 increment. Wakata is scheduled to return to Earth in mid-May on a Russian Soyuz spacecraft.
