In my life I’ve had the pleasure to meet so many amazing people that I like to think I am well above average in this regard. Before I got kicked out of Harvey Mudd College I lived in West dorm, two doors down from Mike Stark and Stan Love. Stan was your stereotypical geek: skinny, super-smart, and very nice.
Stan grew up into studly astronaut-guy, and a short while ago he took off on the shuttle flight STS-122. I can’t imagine how he must feel now.
Godspeed Stan, and I can’t wait to hear all about it.
