​​​​Memorize this Cufflink Patch Poem:   

Can be used with cufflinks for rips in canvas cloth in some conditions:

Twist, it , Twist it,,
add a rib or two. Tape it , cover it, tape, it, under, over, and the other side too. Make certain tinfoil,tape, or plastic  will not melt in heat, or crumble in cold. Prop it with an unsharp stick to prevent pooling flows. Monitor for changes as you usually do, and the rip is now  temporarily fixed for you.

On Intellectual Courage:  "You have to be there for the right reason"

"You have to be there, not for fame, and glory, and recognition, or the having your name on a page in a history book."

"You have to be there because you believe that your talent and ability can be applied effectively to operation of the space craft."

"You've got to believe that your good in your field and you can contribute, not because your gonna get a lot of fame."

On how to build confidence - issues of safety risks: Practice, Practice, Practice:

"You have to be a dedicated, objective, individual....

"It is going to be dangerous and I'm going to spend my time worrying about what I do, and practicing what I do if things go wrong. In doing that you take that initial attitude of believing you can do it and you build alot of confidence particularly in the simulators."

On technological glitches: 

"We wanted to make sure that if there were any failures in the machines, that man was going to be there to correct it"​

If  you could, what changes would you recommend to the Astronaut's living space to make it more enjoyable?

"From Caring Comes Courage." Lao Tzu

"We came to a rest period(while on the moon) and I looked up at the earth for the first time... really seeing it, and the black sky, and the blue planet, all by itself up there, and that was an emotional moment for me." "Seeing the earth, even though it is four times as large as the moon, still it looks fragile, still it looks small." We need to start thinking about how to take care of it."

Be A Good Role Model For The Next Generation: 

Do Not Drink, Do Not Do Drugs, Do Not Post Unkind or negative images of phrases online.  Be Ethical, Honest, And Good, Encourage explorations.             


  RE: Local Space Art Kids,

arriving at Pinkerton in a few years:

              Leadership Lesson:

Preparing the learning environment for the next generation. 

   Make it extremely positive !

Do all that you can to make the environment "bully free" so that the next generation's innovation, creativity and curiosity can become enhanced in space science to benefit humanity.

Take Astronaut Alan B. Shepard's Advice - (the number 2)

Follow this plan and you will rarely  be overwhelmed with large amounts of data during presentations or meetings that require rapid effective health and safety decisions.

If you want to pursue Space Science Careers, take Astronaut Alan B. Shepard Jr.'s advice and plan ahead. Make things easier for yourself.. much easier.. This learning schedule will help.  Take two semesters of speed reading, two semesters of short hand, two semesters of public speaking, learn chess, be in a few plays to practice projecting your voice, know your abacus, and ethical scientific principles( including precautionary principle). If you can't fit them in during school years, take them in the summer. Prepare now,  Refresh these lessons every few years once  you have your science degrees to keep your skills strong. (Learn more at the bottom of this page ) One day the time may come where you find the need to speak truth to power to benefit humanity. 

Where in your home, at school, at work, or on/in an everyday product can you find these and how are they used?
                                         Take a photo, or bring one that you found with you to class.
