The Exploration Appeal
Astronaut Peggy Whitson discusses the appeal of exploring in a new and unusual environment.
- Well I think the thing that appeals to me about being an astronaut, but working for NASA in general is the exploration part. I really get excited about, not only exploration of space, but any types of expeditions, doing things in a new and unusual environment, it all appealed to me. And the technical challenges, the physical challenges, all those pieces appeal to me about being an astronaut.
