Congratulations to NASA astronaut Mike Barratt

...who, in addition to training for his six-month flight aboard the International Space Station next year, has just published a textbook, Principles of Clinical Medicine for Space Flight.

I met Mike in November when I went to Houston to explore a collaboration between NASA and The Beagle Project involving joint science, education and outreach. A formal agreement is under discussion, so watch this space (heh heh, pun very much intended).
