Space on 8th Avenue Tonight

Editor's note: I was walking down 8th Avenue in New York this evening with astronaut Scott Parazynski after dinner with Leroy and Karen Chiao, my wife, Scott, and noted sailor Alex Whitworth when I spotted a familiar face: Peter Smith. He was about to walk into an event sponsored by Popular Mechanics: Breakthrough Awards which honors a number of technological innovators including those behind the Mars Phoenix Lander. Leroy, Scott, and I are in town for the Explorers Club Lowell Thomas Annual Dinner tomorrow night. Scott and Leroy are among the award winners. Small world.
