Astronaut Interviews: Drew Feustel

11/18/2020

This is one in a series of exclusive astronaut interviews filmed inside space shuttle Endeavour at the California Science Center. In this interview, conducted in 2016, astronaut Drew Feustel talks about his education, which he started by going to community college and working as a mechanic on classic cars! Of course, he also talks about being a mission specialist—how it feels to go into space, the surprise of missing home so much, and the gift of learning how to step back and learn how to see the bigger picture and not worry about the little things.

Astronaut interviews were made possible by a generous grant from The Ahmanson Foundation.
