I'd like to thank you very kindly for sending me along the mission patch for STS-33...a DoD mission, elements kept secret. It came about a week
ago...immediately before I was to leave for Cuba, so there was no chance to reply in a timely fashion.
I had initially planned to add an Apollo 11 medallion and pass it along to a budding high-school space nerd. However, my wife pointed out how my
almost-4 grandson, who is exhibiting some signs of Asperger's, is officially a space nerd on his own. Already he knows the properties of the
planets...pointed out that Ganymede is a moon of Jupiter, refers to the asteroid belt...
I'd say he qualifies. Thanks again, OYM, for your generosity and inspiration. It will be greatly appreciated by the lad.
