I look forward to meeting the astronaut guests as always especially the Shuttle astronauts, but will there be any talks given by any of them?

 

Norm Thagards time on Mir would be very interesting to hear and of course his Shuttle missions go without saying. Im still grinning guys thank you for an amazing line-up.

I was lucky enough to be sat with Norman on the Sunday and had a great day talking about all sorts of things with him, not just space stuff, during the quiet periods. He thoroughly enjoyed his weekend, was quietly surprised at the number of people who met him and would be more than happy to do another if asked.

I am delighted to read that Norman Thagard would be willing to come back as I still have a lot of stuff to get signed.

He was interesting and interested, charming, obliging and friendly. All in all, a wonderful guest who would be ever welcome in the future.
