Exploration isn't necessary or always logical. It's something that comes from inside each and every one of us. I believe we're all born with this curiosity called exploration. Human spaceflight is just one aspect of exploration, but it's the one that I've been intimately familiar with over the past six months.

So I feel I can talk to how it affects thousands of people around the world who have worked on and still work on this amazing engineering and science project we call the International Space Station. These folks, along with their families, have dedicated their lives to ensure the success of the astronauts and cosmonauts ... curiosity called exploration for the next generation.

I'm saddened to say goodbye, but that means progress is being made and it's time for the International Space Station to grow a little more. You and the ISS will always be a part of me as you are part of so many who will pave the way for our future.
