Maybe I missed something but I don't think the article mentions Fossum is on this current shuttle mission! Unreal. He has participated in the 3 spacewalks, which have been very successful. Kudos to him.
I think it's a local story in a local paper. From the looks of the website, they have been covering all the spacewalks and the whole mission. Everybody who reads that paper already knows who Fossum is. Or that's what I suspect. I emailed the story to our son's den leader. Maybe I should email her and let her know who Mike Fossum is. lol
Good point -- I hadn't even noticed that.
