On a recent NASA mission, astronaut Rick Mastracchio ’87 helped bring the International Space Station a step closer to completion.

Rensselaer’s Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC), which will provide opportunities to link the arts with pioneering research and perform-
ance, is nearing completion. Designed as both a signature work of architecture and a tool for programs, EMPAC’s building will provide students, artists, researchers, and audiences with opportunities that are nowhere else available under a single roof. A series of opening events is being planned for October.
