"#WHYSPACEMATTERS ? It matters because we need to know how our bodies behave in micro-gravity for long times. We need to know if we want to be able to travel in space for long distances, like Earth-Mars, for example."

"#whyspacematters I am training Sloane, a 5-month-old golden retriever to be a therapy dog at Hartford Hospital and also to work with vets. I am particularly interested in her working with burn victims and those who are adjusting to artificial limbs. The work @iss does on the sense of touch (and smell) and on limb movement I know will benefit the patients Sloane eventually works with and will give them hope."
