Web Extra: After the show was over, we got to talk to Barbara Morgan a little while longer. Watch more video of her on the space shuttle and hear her answers to these questions: What do you see in space, and what do you do for fun? What made you want to go to space? Did you see any UFOs in space? Did you take anything comforting from home? What was it? Would you do it again? Watch it--only on the Web!
