STS-110 Commander Mike Bloomfield[NASA Administrator Sean] O'Keefe came to Mission Control in Houston a couple of weeks ago and announced that I was to be the first Science Officer of the ISS. I obviously don't mind the new title, in spite of the fact that my many supportive friends have sent an incredible amount of Star Trek/Mr. Spock-related email!

Peggy Whitson,
Expedition Five NASA ISS Science Officer
