I was interested in aerospace and flying, and the U.S. is really the best place in the world for flying.

I am deeply grieved by the loss of the crew of Columbia. I express my sincere condolences to the families and friends of the astronauts. I believe that their names will remain as the bright sparkling stars in the universe and will light the way for those who will follow them on the difficult roads of space exploration.

Cosmonauts can keep their word like men and women - particularly women.

Once you've been in space, you appreciate how small and fragile the Earth is.

I am convinced that the modular structure of the Mir will be the main trend in manned orbital stations development in the next century.

I love Star City - it is my home.

To tell her that I joined the parachute club was too hard for me. I didn't want to trouble her; besides, I was not completely sure about the success of my new adventure.

One cannot deny the great role women have played in the world community. My flight was yet another impetus to continue this female contribution.

The missing toothbrush was nothing compared with the fact that the spacecraft was orientated to ascend, not descend. I would have gone up and up instead of going back down to the ground.

You don't think about the danger. The spaceship becomes your home.

This a great question because most of us consider it like flying when we first think about it. And yes, I too thought of it as “flying around” initially.

Well, there is no gravity up here to speak of, so nothing pulls us down to the “floor” like it does on Earth. Gravity, the force that holds things onto the planet gets weaker and weaker as we go further and further away from the center of the Earth.

Planets look about the same here as they do to you on the Earth because we really aren’t that much closer. Our home, the International Space Station orbits around the Earth at about 200 miles.

I love samosas and I had asked for some special things, this being one of them. My family was able to work with NASA to get clear packaging and they put samosas in there and it was a nice surprise.

(When asked what else she would like to take with her on future missions) Something for my niece and nephew who are both Indian, some Indian toys and probably another Ganesh. Ganesh is my good luck charm.
