Nov. 25, 2006- Introducing…

This is Heidemarie Stefanyshyn-Piper. Say hi Heide!

Her hand must cramp up writing her name all the time. She flew on the last mission in September. I’ve talked to her several times and she is a very approachable person. Some astronauts aren’t good with people one-on-one and you can see it when they come to visit the processing areas– must be the engineering/personality stereotype (no offense to engineers, but you guys know what I mean).

We have astronauts and other famous people come through our areas from time to time to see the orbiter and see how things are going. Astronauts don’t get to see the vehicle because they train in Houston on the mockups and simulators. I think it is a treat for them to see the real thing once in a while.
