Melissa Carroll and Val Spies have an illuminating interview with Nicole, an American engineer who served as a Flight Engineer and Mission Specialist at NASA for 27 years. Nicole considers herself blessed to have had the opportunity to live and work in space and to have experienced the beauty of our planet from that incredible vantage point.
