Someone I ran with at Whitman (Dorothy) is among a very select group of teachers training in the NASA program. A friend just forwarded me the article:

Metcalf-Lindenburger? That's quite a last name (pretty beefy).

That sounds like a lot of fun, if you're into space stuff. I found this part pretty amusing, "first learned of the NASA's teacher program as she searched the Internet seeking an answer to a student's question: "How do you go to the bathroom in space?" I've searced for a lot of stuff on the 'net, but that question has never crossed my mind.

It was news to me that she had acquired those extra 12 letters in her last name. My initial response was, "no way does she make the program -- that's way too many letters to embroider on a space suit."

If you knew Dorothy, you'd know how fitting that quote is... She's quite a character.
