Profile: Astronaut Greg Chamitoff

Astronaut Greg Chamitoff grew up in San Jose and went on to travel on both the Discovery and Endeavor shuttle missions, and also spent six months on the International Space Station.

He and his colleagues had plenty of work inside and outside the Space Station but they managed to squeeze in some fun, too. In this video you’ll see two astronauts play ball – one of them is floating right side up while the other is upside down. Greg plays the guitar while rotating through the air and you’ll see how the astronauts answer the door when the shuttle docks.
