First on the space, now in Colombia
Picture from Caracol.
The Colombian-American astronaut, George Zamka, the Colombian Nasa scientis Jaime Forero and three of the tripulants of Discovery, Stephanie D. Wilson, Paolo A. Nespoli and Douglas H. Wheelock, are in Colombia in a visit organized by the Ministry of Foreign Relations and Colciencias. The famous team “star” team will make some conferences in Bogotá, Cali and Medellín in a program to promote science for youth and children in the country. Of course, Zamka, whose mother is Colombian, is the one who attracts more the attention. He was born in New Jersey in 1962, but he lived in Medellin for a year and he brought the Colombian flag in the 14-days space trip around the planet, the same he will give to President Uribe in his meeting with him next Tuesday in Bogotá.
