"I have worked for the space shuttle program for 12 years," says Poppino. "My father worked for the program since 1984. I was one person with a small responsibility in a large team that sent humans into space on the only re-usable space vehicle ever built. Spending those last moments with Endeavour served as a means of closing a chapter not only in my career, but in American history."
