Auburn in Space

We’re waxing NASA-talgic in the Monday morning wake of Endeavour’s final launch.

TWER’s favorite Endeavour flight was obviously STS-47 in 1992, and not for the microgravity experiments, but because of the decor brought on board by Mission Specialist 2 Jan Davis (left), the better half of the first married couple aboard a space flight and a 1977 Auburn grad.

And also, yeah, because of Mae Jemison’s shorts.
