Met an astronaut

I met Dr. Bernard Harris in July 2012 and shook his hand. He was the first African American in space and completed two missions there.

  • cgbeauchamp1958 Dr. Harris was not the first African-American in space. NASA recognizes Guion ”Guy” Bluford as such. Mr. Bluford flew in space four times on Challenger in August 1983(STS-8), STS-61A, STS-39, & STS-53. Dr. Harris is an impressive man, just not the first African-American in space!
