Terry Dickson of the Gulf Pine Catholic in the Biloxi Diocese does a fascinating Q & A in the June 13 edition with Robert D. Cabana, director of NASA’s Stennis Space Center. Cabana was inducted into the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame this spring. In the piece he describes losing friends in the Challenger and Columbia tragedies, his thoughts on the possibility of intelligent life on other planets and a worship service, with Communion, in a spaceship. Cabana and his wife, Joan, are parishioners at Out Lady of the Gulf Parish in Bay St. Louis, Miss.
