Aerospace: Interview with astronaut's dad

For those of you outside Australia who are interested in the shuttle mission, has an interview with the father of Adelaide born Andy Thomas.

This is Andy's last mission and he plans to visit Australia in October with his new wife Shannon Walker, 39, who is also a NASA astronaut.

Let us hope that all astronauts aboard make it home safely. It is hard to imagine the anxiety they - and their loved ones, will be feeling.

If there is a God - bring 'em on home.

Dad hopes for astronaut's safe return
