Dr. Andrew Feustel is a NASA Astronaut and Mission Specialist whose passion early in life to wrench on cars came full circle when he flew in to space on board the Space Shuttle Atlantis. He spent 13 days in space improving the Hubble Space Telescope’s observatory’s capabilities, removing frozen bolts, stripped screws, and stuck handrails. Then he flew on Space Shuttle Endeavour’s final mission to the International Space Station. Andrew served as the lead space walker on that trip delivering the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer, a cosmic ray particle physics detector that examines fundamental issues about matter and the origin and structure of the universe.
