What an incredible honor to be recognized as a member of the Texas Aviation Hall of Fame along side these 3 amazing icons. In particular I want to acknowledge Gene Kranz for the remarkable speech. It articulated the inspiration of the time.

The era of human spaceflight began in 1961 when Russian Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin became the first human to orbit the Earth. Since then, astronauts honor his legacy in many preflight traditions such as book signings, tree planting ceremonies & laying flowers in the Red Square.
