New photo

Because the Engineers Club building faces the north, it is infrequent that the lighting is just so that allows the optimum exposurer. As a summer storm approaches, the muted sunlight and the dark clouds over Kettering provide the perfect back drop and I was fortunate to be there with my camera.

Interviews / Astronaut Michael J. Massimino - The Sensitive Explorer

Excerpt:

"On my first flight Duane “Digger” Carey, the pilot, was a rookie with me; we went through astronaut training together. As pilot, he doesn’t get to do any spacewalks, so he told me that he wanted to hear everything about it when I came back in—“I want to hear everything: descriptions, details—explain everything perfectly right away,” he said. So sure enough, when I come in, Digger takes my helmet off and puts it to the side. He’s staring right at me and says, “What was it like?” He’s right in my face, and I’m stuck in this spacesuit, and all I can answer is “The Earth is a planet.”

He says, “What have you been smoking inside your spacesuit?” But that was my revelation! It is strange what goes through your mind out there. Of course, I learned that the Earth was a planet when I was a little kid; “Every good mother does fine” or “My very educated mother just gave me nine pizza pies,” whatever the planet saying is.
