View Video (mp4)


FEMALE SPEAKER: I was sitting in a 1969 Toyota Corolla in bumper to bumper traffic trying to get up, Upstate New York. My boyfriend was driving, and we were supposed to get there like a few hours earlier. So I was in a car, and we were listening to the radio. It was the summer of 1969.

INTERVIEWER: Summer of '69?


INTERVIEWER: And what other memories do you have of NASA over the past 50 years?

FEMALE SPEAKER: A lot of what I taught earth science and chemistry, and I've been to a lot of NSTA conventions, and every time I go, there's NASA exhibits, NASA speakers, all your posters, 3D kind of things.

I just told the person over there that before I had the lasix surgery, I would just memorize the answer keys to your 3D things because I couldn't see anything, and my students would go, "Wow, look at that," and I couldn't see. So today, I put on the 3D glasses, and I could actually see the Third Dimension.
