Tribute to Don Fuqua

Don Fuqua was elected as a Democrat to the United States House of Representatives from Florida and served from January 3, 1963 to January 3, 1987.

Mr. Fuqua served 12 terms as a U.S. Congressman, representing Florida’s Second Congressional District. He was elected Chairman of the House Science and Technology Committee in 1979 after serving on the committee since his election in 1963. He gained firsthand knowledge of the U.S. Space program as a member of the subcommittee that oversaw the program in its formative years and as chairman of the Subcommittee on Space Science and Applications from 1971 to 1981. He served as a member of the Advisory Committee on the Future of the U.S. Space Program, commonly known as the Augustine Council, which provided advice to the NASA administrator on NASA’s programs and policies.

As chairman of the Science and Technology Committee, Mr. Fuqua personally inspected and reviewed research projects throughout the nation. He delved into fields as far-ranging as the development of competitive aircraft of the future, the application of space technology to the needs of the elderly and disabled, the design of fuel efficient autos, the development of liquefied coal, and the protection of the environment from hazards as common as water weeds and as advanced as nuclear waste. The committee has direct authorization and oversight responsibility for most of the nation’s government-funded civilian research, development, and demonstration programs.

STS-127 - ISS 2J/A

Endeavour carried a wide variety of equipment and cargo in the payload bay, with the largest item being the Kibo Japanese Experiment Module Exposed Facility (JEM EF), and the Kibo Japanese Experiment Logistics Module – Exposed Section (ELM-ES). The exposed facility is a part of Kibo that will allow astronauts to perform science experiments that are exposed to the vacuum of space. The exposed section is similar to the logistics module on the Kibo laboratory, but is not pressurized. Once its payloads were transferred to the JEM EF, the ELM-ES was returned to the payload bay.

STS-124 "Buzz Lightyear"

Flying with the STS-124 crew was an action figure of Buzz Lightyear, a fictional character in the Toy Story franchise. Ken Ham, pilot of the STS-124 mission, brought with him episodes of ESPN Radio's Mike and Mike in the Morning, and a plastic microphone stand with the ESPN logo on it. Along with those, a yellow jersey from Lance Armstrong's record-setting seven victories at the Tour de France bicycle race, the backup jersey Eli Manning took to the Super Bowl, and the last jersey that American Major League Baseball's Craig Biggio wore in a game were placed inside the orbiter's lockers.

STS-120 - ISS-10A - "Harmony" / "Node 2"

Harmony, also known as Node 2, is the "utility hub" of the International Space Station. The hub contains four racks that provide electrical power, plus electronic data, and act as a central connecting point for several other components via its six Common Berthing Mechanisms (CBMs). Harmony added 2,666 cubic feet (75.5 m3) to the station's living volume, an increase of almost 20 percent, from 15,000 cu ft (420 m3) to 17,666 cu ft (500.2 m3) The successful installation of Harmony meant that from NASA's perspective, the station was "U.S. Core Complete". Harmony was successfully launched into space aboard Space Shuttle flight STS-120 on October 23, 2007. After temporarily being attached to the port side of the Unity node, it was moved to its permanent location on the forward end of the Destiny laboratory on November 14, 2007.
