Thanks to so many who have sent e-mails and left comments. I hadn’t thought to keep updating this site on Dottie, but I thank you for those suggestions, and I will do that!
It is amazing to think that as I tuck into bed with night-time prayers, sit here at the computer, do everyday stuff, that Dottie and her fellow astronauts are far above the earth circling us and working. Hard to imagine!
Here is a link to a nice article from ABC News about Dottie, “Discovery Teacher Breaks the Mold” and a short lift-off video that they call “the picture perfect” lift off! For those of us who remember when the lift off ended quickly with an explosion, “picture perfect” are great words!
You can see the latest news about the STS-131 mission here at the NASA.gov website, as well as an awesome lift-off photograph taken by NASA personnel.
And you can see more great STS-131 Mission Photographs here!
Here you can see a great photograph of the space station, and read about what the mission will be doing, how many space walks it will do, etc. Dottie told me what her job will be, and you can read about that in my first post here.
God Bless, Dottie!
