331. My Own Theme 35 ~Astronaut~

This is astronaut/space tourist Greg Olsen, preparing to give a lecture about his 2005 ‘trip’ to the Space Station.  One of the many things he does is go to schools and libraries and give presentations (no charge of course) to students and others to promote an interest in science.  His lecture was fascinating!  HERE’S some additional info about him.  I think his ticket to space costs somewhere around $20 million. lol  REALLY!!

  1. Fantastic portrait–what a life he’s had, and what a great thing to be doing with it now.

  2. I bet that lecture is one that nobody would fall asleep during! Very cool theme, but glad I don’t have to try and fill it! lol

  3. How cool is that, I have 3 boys here (plus me) who would absolutely love hearing him speak! I hope they can find a way to keep the space program going strong! Fabulous processing on this!
