This is the first in a series of exclusive astronaut interviews filmed inside Endeavour at the California Science Center. The series will feature 10 space shuttle astronauts telling tales of life in space. Astronauts interviewed include Charlie Precourt, Dan Bursch, Drew Feustel, John “Danny” Olivas, Garrett Reisman, Kay Hire, Mike Finke, Sandra Magnus, Steve Swanson and the late Rick Searfoss.
In this interview, Mission Specialist Garrett Reisman covers all kinds of topics like how he became an astronaut, what launch feels like, and the mystery behind his astronaut nickname!
Astronaut interviews were made possible by a generous grant from The Ahmanson Foundation.
