Celebrating NASA's 50th year Anniversary
So I've returned from Houston to premote NASA's 50th Year Anniversary on behalf of the Coalition for Space Exploration.
I had such a great time conversing with Commander Gene Cernan! I mean, what an honor to be sitting next to a man who actually walked on the moon.
We sat through about 30 live live and live-to-tape television and radio broadcasts by stations around the United States. The whole experience was more than inspiring to me! I also had time to got visit Texas A&M University to give a talk to students about the orbiter's Thermal Protection Systems. I hadn't been back to Texas A&M since 2005 and so much has changed! I kinda miss my old college town. :)
Here are a couple of links to some videos that were uploaded by some t.v. stations.
