    A NASA Astronaut -- with a compelling new mission to change the
    course of the solar system.Dr. Lu served as a NASA Astronaut for 12
    years. He flew the Space Shuttle twice, the Russian Soyuz, and a
    6-month tour on the International Space Station. Altogether he
    logged over 206 days in space and an EVA (spacewalk) totaling 6
    hours and 14 minutes. Dr. Lu flew as a mission specialist on STS-84
    in 1997, as a payload commander and lead spacewalker on STS-106 in
    2000, as flight engineer of Soyuz TMA-2, and served as NASA ISS
    science officer and flight engineer on ISS Expedition-7 in 2003.In
    2003, in the weeks following the loss of the Space Shuttle Columbia,
    Dr. Lu was called upon by NASA to launch to the International Space
    Station in order to maintain operations on orbit with a 2 person
    skeleton crew. He completed the Russian Soyuz training in just 9
    weeks and became the first American to launch as the Flight Engineer
    aboard a Russian Soyuz spacecraft. He and cosmonaut Yuri Malenchenko
    then spent 6 months aboard the ISS, demonstrating that the Space
    Station could be maintained while carrying on productive scientific
    research with just 2 people.In the spirit of ideas worth spreading,
    TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people
    together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks
    video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and
    connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are
    branded TEDx, where x independently organized TED event. The TED
    Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but
    individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain
    rules and regulations)
