Lunch with "The Artistic Astronaut"



Have you ever had lunch with an astronaut? RE/MAX Flagstaff brokers Annette Gardinal and Jimmy Millhollin recently had the opportunity to meet and have lunch with Nicole Stott, a veteran astronaut, who was the keynote speaker at the Flagler County Chamber of Commerce Thrive Business Summit held at the Whitney Laboratory for Marine Bioscience. 


Nicole is a 27-year veteran astronaut with two NASA spaceflights and 104 days living and working in space on both the Space Shuttle and the International Space Station (ISS). She performed one spacewalk and was a member of the crew of the final flight of the Space Shuttle Discovery, STS-133. She is also a NASA Aquanaut and holds the Women's World Record for saturation diving following an 18-day mission on the Aquarius undersea habitat.


Seeing the Earth from space, Nicole had an epiphany. She vowed to dedicate the rest of her life to sharing the overwhelming beauty of our planet with others. She believes that doing so will help others appreciate and care for our home planet and each other.


The first astronaut to paint in space, Stott is now a full-time artist and SciArt Education Advocate, known as "The Artistic Astronaut." Through her work, she shares the awesome beauty and impressions she experienced through the windows of a spacecraft. An ongoing promoter of Art and Science, she works to generate widespread interest in the integration of these two important fields. 


Annette and Jimmy adventurous in their own right, were very impressed with Nicole’s service to our country, the space program, and dedication to the integration of art and science.
