The Question

(Submitted February 28, 1997)

When you are up in space, do you ever get lonely?

The Answer

Our Laboratory at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center is interested in sources of X-ray and gamma-ray emission in our Universe. No one in our Laboratory has ever been into space. I can give you the following lead, however, to directly ask some of NASA's astronauts if they were ever lonely.

Because of the extremely high volume of e-mail they would receive if their addresses were public, astronauts' e-mail addresses are restricted. However, you can write them at the following address:

Astronaut Office/CB
Johnson Space Center
Houston, TX 77058

Good luck!
