Description

On this edition, we’ve found space for one of our country’s most decorated space heroes.  

Jim Wetherbee is a former naval officer, aviator, test pilot, aerospace engineer and NASA astronaut.  Perhaps most impressive is his distinction as a veteran of six space shuttle missions and the only American to have commanded five space flight missions.

Wetherbee shares his own history with host Kraig Kann and they discuss a childhood that led him to Notre Dame, the U.S. Navy and then onto NASA.  What’s it like to climb in a craft bound for outer space?  What’s the rush?  What are the fears?  He discusses it all - and the dream of an opportunity to experience all of it.

Jim shares detailed stories of his many missions including Columbia, Discovery, Atlantis and Endeavor.  But this soft-spoken Oregon resident, who was born in New York, is now a happily retired - yet sought after - consultant who celebrates two daughters and his wife, enjoys tennis and… his drums!  The American Federation of Musicians is also on his amazing life resume.

So, what on earth do you even ask a man who’s docked with the Russian Mir and also the international Space Station multiple times? What stands out the most?  Which outer space movie is his favorite?  You’ll find out as Kraig goes all in on this edition of Tracks To Success.
