The Bleu-eyed Bear gets her first look at home!

The Blue-eyed bear is aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery as part of NASA’s “Faces in Space” program. When the rest of the crew was busy she got a chance to look out Discovery’s front windows for a peak at home. The BE Bear has never seen anything so beautiful and is extremely home-sick!  But, it will only be a 12 day mission and there is sure to be some interesting adventures ahead.

Another beautiful image the BE Bear got to witness was the ISS as the sun went be hind the Earth. Discovery has docked at the Space Station so the BE Bear will get to stretch her space legs and try some of her own weightless experiments. Stay tuned for more adventurous updates!
