So great to be back in my ‘home away from home’!  Big NBL run on Monday to prepare for spacewalks this Summer.  So excited...but with some very guarded enthusiasm...I haven’t been in the EMU suit since being in space in August, 2010 and wrestling with the failed Ammonia Pump Module...  :-/

In ‘the office’ today looking at tools & hardware and reviewing the choreography.  We have a tremendous team in place and we’re excited to prepare for the big day.

So cool!
We have a similar proverb in Japan.
"Be prepared and you'll have no regrets."
備えあれば憂いなし。
