Space Ride Commemmorated At TTU

A framed CD that flew into space on the shuttle Atlantis is now on display at the Tennessee Tech Bryan Fine Arts Building. The CD was recorded by the Tennessee Tech tuba ensemble and was taken into space last November by astronaut Barry Wilmore, an alumnus of the school. Part of the display is a photograph of the CD floating in the Atlantis cockpit beside Wilmore. The CD, titled "Legacy," was recorded by Tech music professor R. Winston Morris and the Tennessee Tech 40th Anniversary All-Star Alumni Ensemble in 2007.
