Quote of the day: Guion Bluford at the Forum

"The sad thing about a shuttle mission is when you hit the point in your checklist when it says 'bring vehicle home. '" -- Guion S. Bluford, Jr., at the March 21 Penn State Forum luncheon at the University Park campus. A 1964 graduate of Penn State, Bluford was the first African American to fly in space and was a NASA mission specialist and payload commander astronaut on four Space Shuttle missions.
