‘Space travel is risky, but we have confidence’

Idaho Public TV’s Marcia Franklin asked teacher-astronaut Barbara Morgan about the damage to tiles on the Space Shuttle Endeavor during her live interview with Morgan and fellow astronaut Al Drew today. Here’s what Morgan said: “The word we are getting is that this is more of an issue for the orbiter’s reuse and not our personal safety, and we have a lot of faith in the program, and we’ll do what the engineers decide is the best thing for us to do. Space travel is risky, but we have all confidence that we’re going to be able to do the right thing.” One other note: Morgan expects to get a glimpse of Idaho from space tonight or tomorrow.
