Happy Engineers Week from the International Space Station

February 15, 2013

Greetings from the International Space Station! Iā€™m, Commander of Expedition 34. Congratulations on the 62nd observance of National Engineers Week. This week, volunteers from engineering societies and professional organizations are stimulating interest in math and science among our youth who will one day be the engineering and scientific talent our national needs to succeed in the future. All across the nation there will be science fairs, mentoring, educational outreach and student design competitions.

Recognition of engineering professionals is also occurring at celebrations that highlight their many, many contributions to making earth an even better place. We appreciate what you do every day to keep us safe up here, to keep our families secure at home, to contribute to the economic vitality of our nation, and to make continued technological progress for the benefit of all. Have a great week on our beautiful planet, Earth!
