Email From Space!

If you have been reading this blog then you already know that, last year, I photographed a wedding for NASA employee, Gregory C. Johnson, who, as it turns out, is the pilot for the current space shuttle mission to the Hubble space telescope. Greg sent the following email and photo to ME (uh, and 121 others) today from Atlantis!

Hello from space!! It is absolutely awesome up here!  The view is HUGE from 350 miles up and you orbit every 90 min“ wow!!!  Here is a picture of me in space in the left seat. If all goes well we will land tomorrow at the Cape. Hope to see everyone some time after the flight,

STS Pilot
