Any chance of getting detailed pictures of the starboard six (s6) element in or around the shuttle.

Hi, I'm Amanda Alfing.

I live in Arizona and attend Sahuarita High School where I'm currently a senior. In my english class we're having to write a research paper on the career we'd like to have. I personally would love to be an astronaut. For this paper, though, we need to interview someone in that field. I was hoping I might be able to steal a few minutes of your time and send you an email with a few questions on it. I would greatly appreciate it.
If so, I can be reached at

Thanks so much,
