Columbus Astronauts (STS-122)

Last Tuesday, the astronauts in the Space Shuttle Mission 122 came to ESTEC. These astronauts were the ones who brought the European Laboratory, Columbus, to the International Space Station. There was an astronaut missing, but he was still up there or just came back. They explained their mission and the deployment of Columbus and answered to our questions.

This is one of the best things of working at a place such as ESTEC!!

These were the crew:

The conference room was full, mostly with young people!

And they signed some official photos of the mission which were handed out in the conference room. Before getting mine signed, I also got a picture with them!!
