Look what Lulu got!
I'm incredibly excited that Astronaut John "Danny" Olivas, a real live spacewalker, took the time to write a few inspirational words for my little Princess Scientist!
Dr. Olivas is a retired American astronaut who spent 27 days, 17 hours, and 5 minutes in space. He was selected by NASA in 1998 and served on two missions. On spaceflight STS-117, the 118th Shuttle mission, Dr. Olivas accumulated 14 hours and 13 minutes of extra-vehicular activity experience (the first on-orbit EVA repair to Space Shuttle Atlantis). On spaceflight STS-128, the 128th Shuttle mission, Astronaut Olivas accumulated 20 hours and 15 mins of EVA experience. The mission included three spacewalks!
Dr. Olivas also gave Lulu a patch and sticker; insignias for his two missions!
These incredible gifts would not have been possible without the help of Lulu's tatie Monica, who listened to us everytime we talked about space and astronauts. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH, Monica!!!!
