On a trip to see the ICIS Houston office last week, three of the London ICIS Heren team were invited to a special ‘Salute our Shuttle’ evening at the Johnson Space Center just south of Houston.
Just for workers and their friends and families, it was a tribute to the end of the space shuttle mission. Ian, a former NASA-employee who now works as a subeditor in the Houston office, lined up the visitors with some tickets through a friend who works at the center.
A fly-past and some live music rounded the night off as astronauts signed autographs, and the Heren guys came back with a special pin to commemorate the event – only available to those who were there on that night.
