“When my friend, astronaut Scott Parazynski and I went to Nepal in 2009, Suni sent a picture of Gorbie to us. This picture flew with her on the ISS. That picture of Gorbie plus my old NASA badge from 1990 made it to the summit of Mt. Everest (the picture Gwen is holding) with an Apollo 11 moon rock I carried into Nepal. That moon rock (which Scott carried to the summit of Everest) plus a piece of the summit of Mt. Everest eventually made their way to the ISS via STS-130 shuttle mission. Both rocks now reside in the ISS observation cupola. I am told that a copy of this picture will find its way to the ISS for a reunion with the Everest and Apollo Moon rocks.”
