NASA Sofia--January 14, 2008

NASA thought it would be a great idea to bring the SOFIA jet up from Dryden for a visit and throw an open house for NASA staff and their families. And they were right!

The Kuiper, SOFIA's predecessor, was also open for viewing.

It seemed that everyone on base was there. There was a very long line to get in. It probably took around 40 minutes or more.

The photos of SOFIA's arrival were taken out of my office window. Literally. Out of the window. On the roof. Without a doubt, this job has provided the coolest views from my office.
