Military Medical History

Army Col. Drew Morgan, an astronaut who's a graduate of Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Maryland, participated in a live Q&A from the International Space Station on Wednesday, October 23.

USU students, staff, faculty, as well as students from USU's STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) community partner secondary schools asked questions from USU's Sanford Auditorium. Health.mil live-streamed this event; see the recording below. 

Morgan was among the three-person crew that launched on the spacecraft Soyuz 59S in July to live and work on the International Space Station. He's serving as a flight engineer for the ISS expeditions 60, 61, and 62, with a scheduled return home in April 2020.

Also an alumnus of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, New York, Morgan was selected by NASA in 2013 as an astronaut candidate after serving in the Military Health System as an emergency physician with special operations units worldwide. His two-year astronaut training included Russian language instruction, spacewalk and spacesuit operations, robotics, and water and wilderness survival training.
