Newsday “Astronaut with LI roots opens space exhibit at Cradle of Aviation Museum” featuring Robert “Hoot” Gibson ’66

Robert “Hoot” Gibson, a former “Top Gun” pilot, answered questions from middle school students at the opening of “Space: A Journey to Our Future,” one of the country’s largest interactive traveling space exhibits.

Space Shuttle Commander and former Long Islander Robert

Space Shuttle Commander and former Long Islander Robert “Hoot” Gibson talks to museum visitors about the new traveling and interactive exhibit at the Long Island Cradle of Aviation called “Space: A Journey To Our Future”, as part of the “Countdown to Apollo at 50” celebration and Long Island’s significant contributions to man landing on the moon.

Astronaut with LI roots opens space exhibit at Cradle of Aviation Museum

Robert “Hoot” Gibson spent just three years on Long Island: as a senior at Huntington High School and as a freshman and sophomore at Suffolk County Community College.

But it was his time spent at the Suffolk college, where he majored in engineering science, that led him to become an astronaut, he said.

On Friday, the former “Top Gun” pilot visited the Cradle of Aviation Museum in East Garden City to announce the opening of “Space: A Journey to Our Future,” one of the country’s largest interactive traveling space exhibits.

“I am very pleased to be back on Long Island again, because it played such a role in my future,” said Gibson, 71, who lives in Nashville. “And we’re here to talk about futures today.”

The display is part of the museum’s “Countdown to Apollo at 50” celebration, highlighting the Island’s contributions to the first moon landing.

Gibson served as pilot and commander on five shuttle missions. He said most of his flight time, before he earned his pilot’s license, had been spent flying out of a Deer Park airport as a student pilot.

The former naval officer and aviator spoke to almost 200 visiting fifth- to eighth-graders from East Meadow, Franklin Square, North Merrick and Roose velt on Friday morning about his 18-year career as an astronaut. When he asked the students how many wanted to go to Mars, about 85 percent raised their hands.

“What could be more exciting than that?” he said.

Museum president Andrew Parton said the new exhibit includes a lunar habitat as well as rarely and never before seen artifacts from the Apollo space program. The exhibition — which has immersive environments to engage visitors of all ages — is free with museum admission through August 2019 and is intended to be a fun interpretation of the future of space travel.

“We hope the exhibit inspires the next generation of explorers to look to the stars,” Parton said.

George Iliopoulos, Harrison Haber and Ryan Jacobs, fifth-graders at Barnum Woods Elementary School in East Meadow, said they never imagined they’d meet an astronaut. The 10-year-olds took advantage of that opportunity as they fired questions at Gibson about his eating and sleeping habits in space and how much experience was required to become an astronaut.

Gibson answered each question with ease and said he hoped to have helped the children’s science aspirations to take flight.

October 4, 2018 SALUTE TO EXCELLENCE GALA “Celebrating 30 Years of Automotive Workforce Development”

Support Ninth Annual Dig Pink on October 20, 2018 at Suffolk County Community College

Suffolk Athletics Pink Ribbon

September 27, 2018

TO:                 The College Community

FROM:          Dr. Christopher J. Adams, Vice President for Student Affairs

SUBJECT:     Support Dig Pink on October 20, 2018

In conjunction with the College Athletic Department’s annual Dig Pink fundraiser, the Office of Student Affairs has declared Saturday, October 20th, as our Ninth Annual Dig Pink Event. On this day, the entire college community is encouraged to wear pink and attend events taking place at the Brookhaven Gymnasium on the Ammerman Campus in Selden.

Prior to the event, Suffolk Sharks Breast Cancer Awareness T-shirts will be on sale at the Registrar’s Offices on all three campuses and at the Athletic Department Offices on the Ammerman and Michael J. Grant campuses. You can also place orders for t-shirts via email to Joe Kosina, College Associate Director of Athletics at kosinaj@sunysuffolk.edu. Cash and checks will be accepted as payment, with checks made payable to the Suffolk Community College Association. Please use the attached t-shirt order form to place your order in this manner.

Proceeds from the sale of these t-shirts, as well as all donations received on Saturday, will go to the Side-Out Foundation for Breast Cancer Awareness. The Side-Out Foundation was established to unite players and coaches to work toward the common goal of advancing breast cancer awareness, education and patient services. Last year our event raised over $3,000 bringing our eight-year total to $47,219—the most raised by any NJCAA institution over that time period.

There are numerous other ways the college community can support the October 20th effort:

  • Women’s basketball will be hosting a youth shooting clinic beginning at 9:00 a.m. in the Brookhaven Gymnasium
  • Men’s baseball and lacrosse will be hosting youth clinics on the athletic fields beginning at 10:00 a.m.

  • Cheer and Dance teams will be hosting a youth group and performing at 4:30 p.m.
  • Men’s basketball will be holding a Pink/White intra-squad scrimmage beginning at 5:00 p.m.
  • Other kid-friendly events will be offered throughout the day including face painting, bouncy houses and pony rides
  • As part of the day’s fundraising on October 20th, the Athletics Department will hold a gift basket raffle in the lobby of the Brookhaven Gymnasium starting at 10:00 a.m. and concluding at half-time of the men’s basketball scrimmage. Winners need not be present. Gift baskets will include donations made by local businesses and restaurants.

For more information about the event, please contact Joe Kosina either through e-mail or at (631) 451-4881.  You can also check the athletics website www.sunysuffolkathletics.com for updates and schedules.
