John Grunsfeld is an astronaut who just completed his fifth mission into space. He blasted off earlier this year aboard the Shuttle Atlantis to fix the ailing Hubble Telescope. A key part of the mission involved a space walk to tend to some delicate repairs to the telescope. The work was intricate and detailed: one mistake and the astronauts could put themselves and their team in jeopardy.
John joins Dick Gordon to discuss his thoughts on this, perhaps his last, space mission.
