Parsippany is over the moon about one of its native sons.
That’s why Parsippany is honoring Dr. Garrett Reisman, an astronaut who has been to the International Space Station twice for two spacewalks, logging 107 total days in orbit.
Reisman will be honored on Friday, July 18 at 11 a.m. at Veterans Memorial Park with a plaque presented by Mayor James Barberio. The plaque will be permanently installed at the park.
Reisman graduated Parsippany High School in 1986 and joined NASA in 1998 as an engineer and astronaut.
Reisman went aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour in March 2008 and Space Shuttle Atlantis on May 14, 2008.
The event is open to the public and all are encouraged to attend.
