Walter Gordon Symposium 2015


in Daily updates

This year’s Walter Gordon Symposium was a thought-provoking discussion on public policy.

I also got to ask what, despite all the training beforehand, was the most surprising thing about flying in the space shuttle.

It was all very brief. We had just finished dinner in the Massey dining hall, and I spoke with her for a few seconds as she was heading for her cab.

I prefaced my question with a comment about the extensive training all astronauts go through. Nonetheless, she reiterated the point that you train for everything. She said that the shuttle itself wasn’t very interesting, and began to talk about “the ride” when someone interrupted.

She did give an excellent talk at the keynote later.
