Cosmonaut tells his tale at Ohio University
(2008-05-22)
(WOUB) - Charles Simonyi realized a lifelong dream of flying in space about a year ago when he visited the International Space Station as a tourist.

Simonyi - who's from Hungary - shared that experience when he visited Ohio University in Athens yesterday.

He spent 13 days in space and one of his activities was speaking with schools in Ohio and elsewhere.

Simonyi came to OU as a speaker for the Frontiers in Science Lecture Series.
