Face in Space

Did you ever feel like you wanted to get away from it all? I mean far, far, far, far away from it all? I have that feeling sometimes, so I scheduled myself for a trip to the International Space Station aboard NASA's space shuttle Discovery. I'm scheduled to leave on September 16, 2010 on Mission STS-133, the next to the last shuttle flight. The astronauts and I will be delivering critical spare components to the Station. We plan to be away for 8 glorious days.

Of course, I'm not actually traveling to outer space, but my picture is. After the flight (and my photo) return, I'll be able to print out my commemorative flight certificate signed by the Mission Commander.

If you want to send your children along, I'll do my best to keep and eye on them during the trip. You can reserve a spot on the shuttle for their photo at NASA's Face in Space website.

Here are some great books to prepare for the trip.
