Look who ELSE I met!!!





And I saw Eileen Collins! There was no way I was going to let her leave without getting a picture with her. She is such an inspiration to me since I was to be an astronaut.

Today in the bay where Discovery is "parked", we got a visit of the STS-114 crew.
I got to take a picture with Steve Robinson. He was the astronaut who pulled one of the gap fillers out while in orbit. It was good to talk to him about the gap fillers especially since I was involved in the failure analysis with the gap filler assessment group.

And finally, Wendy Lawrence, another great inspiration just motivating me even more to work hard and follow my dream. Enjoy the pictures!

How cool that not only do you get to meet your inspirations, but you get photos with them too! Awesome.

As well, if there are any space blogs that you know of that are not already on the blogroll, please let them know about it so that they can contact me (and then I can add them, too).

I have not checked in for a while. I am glad to see you were not affected by Boeing strike.

Congratulations on your new home, it looks like a great place for an astronaut to live.

In a few years there will be youngsters who will want to have their picture taken with you.

Great blog... keep posting.

But luckily there is a site I have found that allows you to buy and sell anything like how to repair a road bicycle on interest free credit and you can pay for your how to repair a road bicycle whenever you want. Here's the link one more time: how to repair a road bicycle.
