Family Tradition Continues With Flowers at Mission Control

The upcoming launch of the Expedition 39/40 crew is celebrated with the continuation of a tradition that has buoyed the spirits of Houston's Mission Control Center flight teams since the STS-26 shuttle mission in 1988. A bouquet of roses from the Shelton and Murphy families near Dallas, Texas, arrived like clockwork in the flight control center as an ongoing show of support for the upcoming mission. The bouquets always include a rose of a similar color for each astronaut, plus a single white rose in memory of those astronauts whose lives have been lost in NASA's exploration of space.
