During landing last week....

Last week I was given the opportunity to tour James Haven (Angelina Jolie's brother) and friend, Shawn B. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were actually scheduled to come for a tour on the day Endeavour landed, but between filming and other commitments, they were unable to break free. Instead, I showed James and Shawn around the OPF where Atlantis is currently "parked" and around the Thermal Protection Systems Facility (where they fabricate all the tiles, blankets, and gap fillers). They were both very intrigued and impressed by all they saw that day.

The resemblence in the pictures below is clear to see who is Angelina Jolie's brother. :)

Are these kinds of tours available to the general public, or just to celebrities (and their brothers)?

Getting this close on site is not available to the general public. Somehow this was arranged through the public affairs office.

You are just as pretty as Angelina, and you blog.

Hello Damaris.
I keep coming to read your blog every so often, and recommend it to all my friends. Just now I bumped into a series of photos posted by Russian enthusiasts having worked for the Soviet Space Shuttle in 1980's.
I thought you and your blog visitors might be interested in Buran photos:

Good luck!

Hello Damaris, I am student from Argentina, who have emigrated to spain and I want to become an European Astronaut. Well I would like to have a partner in future travel, for example, landing on Mars.

Good Luck, Manuel
