Judie Oberheuser told the San Angelo Writers' Club of her late husband's journey. Joe Oberheuser designed or had his hand in nearly every satellite NASA launched before 2005. He was a major force in the Hubble Space Telescope. Judie knew Joe would want to be involved in its repair. She asked if he could fly the Atlantis mission.
NASA lacked an appropriate space container for Joe's ashes. They did the next best thing, inviting the spirit of Joe to Mission Control. Minutes ago, the shuttle arm freed a repaired Hubble space telescope. Hubble will never touch human hands again. It was another successful mission for the spirit of Joe Oberheuser.
