Linda M Godwin QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
A lot of these things will fly in later forms on the space station themselves, or a later form of that research will, once they kind of find out some of the basics from flying it on shuttle.
Quotation of Linda M Godwin
Although I know a lot of the previous shuttle flights, in theory, had their tasks laid out; but there were still some changes that came along for them.
Quotation of Linda M Godwin
As always, we prepare for all sorts of contingencies. And the first few days of the flight up until docking on Day 3 are all spent really in the rendezvous because we launch at a time that puts us in an optimal position to catch up to station.
Quotation of Linda M Godwin
As you're climbing around on station, you may have to do tether swaps or some double-tethering for a while, and what we're going to be doing is staying tethered to the arm.
Quotation of Linda M Godwin
I did grow up with a really big interest in math and science; I liked it.
Quotation of Linda M Godwin
I grew up watching a lot of the coverage of the early U.S. space program, all the way back starting with Mercury and then through Gemini and Apollo and of course going to the moon as the main part of the Apollo program.
Quotation of Linda M Godwin
I was interested in NASA, but I never thought it was something I could do, but I imagine that it fueled an interest in the science that I had already.
Quotation of Linda M Godwin
I'll be the person using the shuttle robotic arm.
Quotation of Linda M Godwin
I'll grapple it with the shuttle arm, we lift it very slowly, straight up out of the bay, to kind of a low hover position, then we start moving it to high hover which moves it forward relative to the shuttle, and rotates it around a little bit and gets it positioned, ready to put it on to the Node.
Quotation of Linda M Godwin
I'm the lead for the spacewalk using the shuttle arm, and for the transfer operations, as well as many other duties.
Quotation of Linda M Godwin
I've been much more involved in the rendezvous training for this mission than I was on the rendezvous that we trained to do to go to Mir.
Quotation of Linda M Godwin
In the Astronaut Office we're never totally out of training, we always keep our hand in it. But after five years, things have changed and so it's been good to get back into the flow and relearn a lot of things.
Quotation of Linda M Godwin
It all has applications to humans, which is one of the really appealing things about doing microgravity research.
Quotation of Linda M Godwin
It definitely helps to have been through the arm training flow before and to have used the arm on orbit, and it also gives me the confidence to know that our training facilities are really good, that when you get up there, you feel like you've been there.
Quotation of Linda M Godwin
It is a very busy mission: every day has some major goals that we have to get through, but my experience before has been that at least in the evening, you kind of take a deep breath and look around where you are and have some downtime.
Quotation of Linda M Godwin
It's really a good feeling to know that we put this up there, that it's working, that all these people's plans that worked so hard came together and things fit and we've got a real space station.
Quotation of Linda M Godwin
It's really kind of a challenge to keep coordinated with the two station crews that we'll be interacting with. And of course one of them launched quite some time before our mission.
Quotation of Linda M Godwin
It's very important to know that we packed it right because it is a safety issue for coming home.
Quotation of Linda M Godwin
Our flight was always designated as some Launch On Need or flexible mission to meet the maintenance needs of station, all the way along.
Quotation of Linda M Godwin
Our shuttle crew is four people, because we're going to transfer a crew up to station, so all the jobs are divided between four people rather than five or six people. So it's been busy.
Quotation of Linda M Godwin
Shuttle missions are kind of like a sprint, and the longer-duration flights-there's a little more time to draw a deep breath.
Quotation of Linda M Godwin
The education process is really important, and teachers and educators play a big role in how their students turn out.
Quotation of Linda M Godwin
The training comes to us with the benefit of what has gone before.
Quotation of Linda M Godwin
There is an S-band antenna assembly out there that probably will be powered down, because we get pretty close to that and we don't want that to be on.
Quotation of Linda M Godwin
There's a lot of interest from the medical community on how things develop in microgravity, and the hope, later, that is expected to apply to what the changes are in humans as well.
Quotation of Linda M Godwin
They get a list, before we arrive, that says this bag needs this in it with this label, and it's pretty complicated and they have a lot of sorting and packing to do to get that ready. And that all is supposed to match our list of items that come back, and there are specific places for it to go.
Quotation of Linda M Godwin
This has been a big year in terms of adding robotic capability, adding more living space, and now finally to where we're adding more science.
Quotation of Linda M Godwin
UF is Utilization Flight. That got put in the manifest quite some time ago.
Quotation of Linda M Godwin
We didn't use the shuttle robot arm before, so this has been a training flow to get ready for that.
Quotation of Linda M Godwin
We launch when we're kind of in the same orbit that they are in terms of being matched up in inclination in space, and we're just in a little different altitude.
Quotation of Linda M Godwin
We still have a lot of international partner modules that need to get up there to make it truly the international structure that it will be, and that's highly important; we need to get to where the crew size is bigger.
Quotation of Linda M Godwin
We're going to get some tools out and help out the 8A guys a little bit, bring them in so they don't have to visit a couple of the toolboxes.
Quotation of Linda M Godwin
We're on the same radius from the Earth, and then we start to swing around to where we're ahead of them on the velocity vector, so we come in relative to the station from this forward velocity position and dock on to the forward end of the Lab.
Quotation of Linda M Godwin
We're taking up some science experiments, some crystal growth things, we have a refrigerator that carries up some samples, new samples that go into the station, we bring the old ones home; we have a lot of clothing, we have a lot of food-U.S. and Russian food.
