dan tani's unique view of the world


Astronaut Dan Tani serves as flight engineer on the International Space Station where he has conducted four space walks. You might remember that Tani's mother was killed in a car accident a few months ago. He had to learn the sad news while in space, and was unable to return home for her funeral. Here, he honors her memory through this inspiring essay for NPR's "This I Believe" series: An Optimistic View of the World.
