How high do you really have to fly to be considered an astronaut? As space tourism takes off, is it safe? We talk with a former NASA space shuttle engineer—Florida Institute of Technology President Dr. T. Dwayne McCay—about these topics and much more in this inaugural episode of Today in STEM.

Wes joined Florida Institute of Technology in 2009 and currently serves as Vice President for Executive Communications working in the Office of the President.
