Congratulations to my colleagues and friends of shuttle mission STS-98, flown eight years ago this week. We delivered the Destiny laboratory to the International Space Station. And we left Earth in style…see photo above. Beamer, Roman, Marsha, Taco — it was a privilege flying with you.
Enjoy the mission photo galleries at my web site: www.AstronautTomJones.com. And read an “inside the spacesuit account” about how this mission unfolded in my book, Sky Walking: An Astronaut’s Memoir (Smithsonian Collins, 2006).
