Q&A with Fred Haise: To INFINITY and Beyond

Interviewed by Joelle Seligson

This interview appeared in the March/April 2015 issue of Dimensions magazine.

After storied careers in the military, NASA, and the business world, Haise has retired—yet he continues to lend his leadership abilities to ASTC member INFINITY Science Center, Pearlington, Mississippi, to which he drives six hours each way once a month to serve as vice chair of the board. Haise spoke with Dimensions about how his astronomical past serves him and the science center today.
