Thanksgiving Flowers in Mission Control
JSC2011-E-212006 (23 Nov. 2011) --- In JSC's Mission Control Center, Flight Director Ginger Kerrick (in the blue shirt) and Capcom Kathy Bolt work to support the Expedition 30 mission currently being conducted aboard the International Space Station. Flowers, adorning the joint consoles, were sent by the Shelton/Murphy families for Thanksgiving and in honor of the crew members onboard at present and the three that landed earlier this week, as well as flight control teams. The North Texas residents have been sending flowers to Mission Control since the first post-Challenger mission -- STS-26 -- in 1988.
