On overnight flights, I have trained myself to get to sleep almost instantly after takeoff. I always listen to the same audiobook on my iPod so my brain knows, regardless of time zone, that that voice means it's time for bed.
Opera singing is in every way of inestimable value; a real heritage for all mankind that has been reached over centuries of studies, attempts, flights of the spirit.
There's something just magical about flight. Period.
The Deep Flight Challenger technology is a game-changer for ocean exploration.
Take time to enjoy the flight - read a good book, watch a film, catch up on emails and sleep.
As a child, I had the opportunity to meet the captain onboard a British Airways flight. It was so exciting to see the cockpit and controls. I was in awe of the captain, and he stamped my log book, which I still have to this day.
And now for Return to Flight, I'm chief of robotics working in the astronaut office in Houston, as a Canadian.
As an astronaut, especially during launch, half of the risk of a six-month flight is in the first nine minutes.
Cutting up fowl to predict the future is, if done honestly and with as little interpretation as possible, a kind of randomization. But chicken guts are hard to read and invite flights of fancy or corruption.
And the first flight of the tether satellite happened in '92, and I was the backup on that flight.
And just when we were at the end of our design process there was the news that the Italian government and the U.S. government had signed an agreement to fly the first Italian astronaut on that flight.
And then my chance really happened in 1996 when we added the second flight of the tether satellite.
Why are people saying it's too soon? Like the people on that flight, we need to agree about what to do about terrorism. And I think we need to have that conversation now.
It makes me sad when I find sisters who aren't joyful. They might smile, but with just a smile they could be flight attendants!
I really hate airport queues. I almost feel they should have cattle prods to hurry us up down the aisles. You can't even complain because they might stop you getting on to the flight.
