Astronauts: May 2020 Archives

Keith's note: I asked a question at a media event today. During Apollo NASA went out of their way to lets us know everything about astronauts including what they eat. Yesterday a reporter asked a simple routine question and got a routine 'I don't know - I'll get back to you response'. Another reporter followed up and got a response to the effect that breakfast menus are exempt from disclosure. Really? NASA regularly puts features up about things like this. How can NASA expect to excite the Artemis Generation when they have lame excuses for not disclosing the most innocuous things? The answer I got was three astronauts talking about the food they ate. No one actually answered my question. Yes this is sily. That's the point.

NASA Remembers Annie Glenn

The following is a statement on the passing of Annie Glenn, wife of former NASA astronaut Sen. John Glenn: "We are deeply saddened by the passing of Annie Glenn. A stalwart member of the space and military communities, her courageous support of her legendary husband John was unmatched. "She provided an example for other women who followed to face the challenges of being part of our nation's space program, and the stress of having spouses in combat. She stood steadfastly by her husband as he took to space once again as the oldest person to orbit Earth, even as she continued her own lifelong public service on behalf of children, the elderly, and the disabled. "The Glenns dedication to each other is well known, and we looked to them as an unmatched example of the strength and compassion that a lifetime of devotion creates. She will be missed."
