Idaho Astronauts In The News
Astronaut Steven Swanson, who flew on the recently-completed Atlantis mission, has parents here in the Boise area; they flew to Florida to welcome him home, but missed out on the landing when weather diverted the shuttle to California.
In August, Idaho will really be in the news when Teacher in Space Barbara Morgan flies on Endeavour during STS-118. This will be especially exciting for our family, because Mrs. Morgan was one of my wife's teachers in McCall, Idaho, back in the '70s. She'll be taking all of Idaho into space with her when she blasts off, and we know she'll do great!
