About the speaker

Born in Minneapolis, Cabana graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1971 with a bachelor's degree in mathematics. He went on to serve in the U.S. Marine Corps until retiring as a colonel in 2000.

During his career, Cabana has logged more than 7,000 hours in 50 different kinds of aircraft. A veteran of four spaceflights, Cabana has logged 38 days in space—his final flight was the first assembly mission of the International Space Station in December 1998.
