    I Spent the Day at Marshall Space Flight Center

    When you’re little, you think you’re invincible. You think that when you grow up you’ll be a super hero or world-famous. It’s not uncommon to for people to ask questions like: ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?' The common answers you’ll hear are: fireman, police officer and astronaut. I was definitely one of those "astronaut kids." Who am I kidding? If you asked me today, at 26 years old, what I would like to be when I’m older, I would still tell you I want to be an astronaut. I’m a space-nerd. I love all things astrophysics, jet propulsion and space shuttles. I’m sure you could imagine my excitement when I was invited out to NASA Marshall in Huntsville Alabama this past February to tour their facilities and get a behind-the-scenes look at the flight hardware for the Orion Stage Adapter!
