When the space shuttle Endeavour blasts into orbit on November 14, nearly half the crew will be Georgia Tech alumni.

Eric A. Boe is one of the Tech alums scheduled to participate on this 15-day mission to the International Space Station. He earned his M.S.E.E. in 1997. Shane Kimbrough (MSOR '98) and Sandra Magnus (PhD MSE '96) are his fellow Tech alumni joining him on this voyage.

The mission focuses on delivering equipment and supplies designed to double the crew size of the station from three to six in May 2009. The station's two Solar Alpha Rotary Joints will also be serviced by the crew.
