2008_8_5.astronaut.jpgHighland Park native and U of C alum John M. Grunsfeld will be making his fifth trip to space and fourth trip to the Hubble space telescope. He's scheduled to be on the shuttle Atlantis's October mission. According to NASA, "Dr. Grunsfeld has logged over 45 days in space, including 5 space walks totaling 37 hours and 32 minutes."

John enjoys mountaineering, flying, sailing, bicycling, and music, which all must seem extremely boring compared to being in space. [SpaceRef]
