Discovery Teacher-Astronaut Breaks the Mold

Metcalf credits her parents, and her younger sister Neva, for encouraging her to pursue her dream even though the odds were stacked against her. She keeps her life as normal as possible. "I try to keep every day normal. I have a normal cup of coffee, do my family stuff, and then come to work, but as it keeps approaching I keep thinking, we are probably really going to take off, unless the weather scrubs us or something, wow, this is going to be amazing!"

She dreams, she says, about her mission. "Sometimes I dream about floating around, in space, I have always dreamt a little bit about flying, and definitely have been dreaming about that more."
