COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.– The 36th annual Space Symposium hosted astronaut and Air Force Academy graduate Nick Hague this week.

Hauge graduated from the U.S. Air Force Academy in 1998 with a degree in aerospace engineering, which eventually allowed him to join NASA as a flight engineer for the International Space Station.

His first launch was in 2018, but things went awry in a very close call.

Hauge and the rest of his crew eventually made it safely to the International Space Station on a mission launch in March of 2019.
