NASA Astronaut Shares His Travels

GILLETTE, (AP) - Former NASA Astronaut John Herrington is sharing his travels with groups in Gillette. The 51-year-old Herrington went to grade school and junior high in Riverton before a career in the Navy led to making space walks.

But he's done more than just space travel. Herrington also rode a bicycle from the state of Washington to Florida after retiring from NASA. He now promotes math and science to kids. He was in Gillette as the guest speaker for the Challenger Learning Center of Wyoming's annual banquet.
