Mike Griffin Visits

Life has been very exciting of late. Last night I attended a debrief of the STS-126 crew. Who should show up but (outgoing?) NASA Administrator Mike Griffin! He flew to Houston from DC Thursday afternoon for last night's event.

Sunday morning at precisely 0618 in the morning the Space Station rose in the early morning sky over Houston. My lanai has an unobstructed Southern view and caught the bright star rising over the horizon. ISS was visible in the sky for 4 minutes.

Friday morning was an "all hands" meeting with Mike. Though his future is uncertain, the people in the room gave him a standing ovation.
