What a Week!!!!!

First, we met 2 astronauts, and actually sat at the main table in the front of the auditorium with the Tulane Dean of Engineering, Dr. Altiero, the Undergraduate Dean Dr. Wee, and 2 astronauts from the Space Shuttle program. Unreal!

  1. Awesome week. Meeting an astronaut would be really cool. Was there time for questions? I would love to know how it feels to accelerate like hell during the launch and then be floating around. Is it comparable to a rollercoaster ride?

    • They said it was a wild ride and not like you see on tv. People get sick and once you are up there, it is the most undescribable thing. They said it is so quick- 8 1/2 minutes after go, you are in space, and the time just seems to go by, then all of a sudden, it’s time to go, and you are a regular person again. They seemed to both say that sleep/wake was OK because they kept the window closed, but the floating/weightless was biggest issue with sleep. Also, eye issues after being up there 5 1/2 months needs more study for long term. Also, landing in a Souyuz capsule was like a train crash because it is landing on land- crashing on land.

  2. Congrats to your daughter on the competition. I bet you are a very proud papa!
