Two UI alumni at SpaceX HQ for launch of Crew-6 to the ISS
Thursday, March 2, 2023

University of Iowa alumni and SpaceX employees, Zachary Luppen and Suman Sherwani, watched the successful launch of Crew-6 to the International Space Station.

While watching from SpaceX HQ, Suman Sherwani and Zachary Luppen snagged a selfie together to show their Hawkeye presence! They are in the back of the SpaceX webcast livestream area (see the red square). They are very happy to have a Hawkeye (and Iowa in general) presence in Hawthorne, CA and they frequently reminisce about their time at Van Allen.
