Playing astronaut

Sometimes, working on the weekend can actually be a lot of fun. Saturday was Explore@NASAGoddard, and my whole family showed up to Goddard Space Flight Center to check out my workplace. In between my shifts at the social media tent, I walked them around my office and the mall, where they met former astronaut John Grunsfeld, a Hubble Space Telescope servicing mission veteran.

My mom and dad with John Grunsfeld.

It was overwhelmingly crowded — more than 20,000 people showed up — but I’m so glad my family was able to stop by. I’m hoping to show them the James Webb Space Telescope the next time they stop by. It’s such an impressive piece of technology to see!

We’re outta this world! Hanging out in the social media tent with my mom and sisters.
