My day at the KSC Press Site

Today I was interviewed by various reporters. I was able to show some TPS materials and share what I do as an engineer in the Thermal Protection Systems group.
















Below is a layout of the TPS materials I displayed and talked about.


















The highlight of my day was meeting the young students that named that US Space Station Module 'Harmony'. Harmony is the US module that will serve as the attachment point for new European and Japanese laboratories. Naming the module was a nationawide student competition. The schools that selected 'Harmony' were:

Paul Cummins' 8th grade class at Browne Academy, Alexandria, Va.

Sue Wilson's 3rd grade class at Buchanan Elementary School, Baton Rouge, La.

Brigette Berry's 8th grade class at League City Intermediate School, League City, Texas

Bradley Neu's 9th grade science class at Lubbock High School, Lubbock, Texas

Yocum Russell's 3rd grade class at West Navarre Intermediate School, Navarre, Fla.

David Dexheimer's students at the World Group Home School, Monona, Wis.


Below are some pictures on me showing the students the TPS of the Space Shuttle Orbiter!
