My family and I had the awesome opportunity to hear Kevin Ford, pilot of STS-128, talk about his adventure aboard the space shuttle Discovery.
Their mission launched last August, 2009 to the International Space Station and took 15,000 lbs of supplies, experiments, and equipment, and performed three space walks. They also took Nicole Stott to the ISS as a space station crewmember, and returned Tim Kopra.
Kevin was informative, funny, and gracious. It was terrific.
Thanks to my brother-in-law Roger for the pictures. I'm the wannabe with the braid :-)
