Indiana Astronauts Visit Wabash  

Crawfordsville native and veteran astronaut Joe Allen and his colleague Janice Voss (a South Bend native) were on campus as part of the Experience Indiana Speakers Program, funded by Lilly Endowment Inc. Allen, who grew up just blocks from the Wabash campus, has been a photographer all his life. He took this photo of a fellow Space Shuttle astronaut during a space walk. The photo ran on the cover of Time magazine, though Allen was disappointed when the photo credit read "Photo courtesy of NASA." Allen was the third astronaut ever to make an untethered space walk.
