Pin on a mission

Astronaut Steve MacLean presents RCGS President Gisèle Jacob with the Society pin he took on the space shuttle Atlantis in 2006. The pin orbited the Earth 186 times and travelled 7.84 million kilometres, says MacLean, who was guest speaker at the annual RCGS College of Fellows dinner in November. He will share stories of his mission with the public during the Society’s Speaker Series in April.
