    Have you ever wondered what it would be like to find yourself strapped to a giant rocket that's about to go from zero to 17,500 miles per hour? Or to look back on Earth from outer space and see the surprisingly precise line between day and night? Or to stand in front of the Hubble Space Telescope, wondering if the emergency repair you're about to make will inadvertently ruin humankind's chance to unlock the universe's secrets?

    It's easy to say why Mike Massimino is amazing — he's been to space. Twice. But the story is bigger than that. It took Astronaut Mike four tries over several years to get accepted into the NASA space program. When his turn finally came to lift off into outer space, nothing prepared him for how amazing a ride it would be.

    Some people call astronauts heroes. But who might an astronaut consider to be a hero? Mike Massimino's dreams of flying in space were formed while growing up in a New York City Fire Department (FDNY) family. Mike's father, Mario, was a fire inspector with the FDNY, teaching Mike through this service that it was important in life to contribute to the public good.
