I just read a story on CNN that states the next shuttle commander is a bit afraid of roller coasters and water slides. And yet this woman is willing to strap herself to tons of explosive fuel that gets loaded onto a ship that is still in a beta version. YOU GO GIRL!!!!!!!! The world needs more people like Eileen Collins. www.cnn.com...

Just goes to show that community college doesn't necessarily mean poor or trashy.

I saw her on TV and those stories do not portray the same message she did 'person to person.'

She claimed to be a mathematician and calculated the risks. She appeared very cool (cold?) and calculating.

Cold? No....... I think it takes a certain amount of drive to reach a point in your life that you are in a position to command a space shuttle. But I don't see her as "cold". Cool, yes........ She comes across as a VERY professional person that knows her job (and knows that she's good at it). I wish her all the best in what must be a very difficult mission. How many here would strap in and ride this puppy into orbit after what happened the last time??? (I think I would if she gave the go) Warp speed Scotty............ quest.arc.nasa.gov...

I think movie Armageddon put it best with "thing that has 270 000 moving parts built by the lowest bidder".
