A Sad Goodbye

Recommended Posts

Hello All My Fly2 friends.Sadly I have to tell you all, I will no longer be creating for Fly2, for the near future at least. My health is getting worse day by day, and the pains in my chest and dizzyness is continueing. I wish you all the best, and those of my team mates in F2FDesign. I will continue ( I hope) with my website, as this is my obligation to NASA and the Millenium Award Commission. When I feel fit again I may continue with my (our) hobby.I was due back at NASA for December this year, but it has now been cancelled, Im devastated about this, but without my health its no good. Over the past few years I have made some of the best friends one could wish for on the Internet, and the Astronaut Training I did at NASA I will never forget. Remember, If you would like to see the video of my NASA trip, its http://www.wrexhamspace.org/movies.htm But a big 36 megs.your friend always, Steve.[divalign=center]http://www.wrexhamspace.org/sig.jpg][/divNASA ATX Graduatehttp://www.wrexhamspace.org

Hi my friend Steve,this is really bad news. NOT the fact you cannot be active for FLY! anymore the next time BUT that your health condition is bad.NOW you have to think of YOURSELF and YOUR FAMILY. Safe all your power for your little daughter and your wife, there is nothing in life more important than your family and the beloved people. Forget FLY! and your PC for the moment, go out into the nature, walk through the fields and forrests as far as your chest pain allows. MOVE YOUR BODY, move your body, it is the VERY best therapy. This is my personal experience, not theoretically knowledge from my profession.Flightsimming should give positive emotion, not stress. For some month I stopped working at my Landsat7 program because I got very stressed due to problems I could not solve. I did the same thing you do now - I STOPPED IT, that is the RIGHT WAY to handle it.I think everybody who knows you as our common friend will understand this and remember you and all your work for the FLY! community. But as this is a very personal forum I would ask you to give us some infos about your health and condition whenever you like to do so.I cannot really express my feelings in a foreign language but you will understand that my thoughts and very best wishes are with you and your wonderful family.Bis sp

>>I was due back at NASA for December this year, but it has now>been cancelled, Im devastated about this, but without my>health its no good. Steve,I work (indirectly) for NASA Ames and big budget cuts are coming in the 2006 budget. Basic aeronautics like hypersonic transport or rotorcraft are no longer being funded. Almost 400 people only here at Ames are being put at risk of loosing a job. The reason is the new Moon/Mars exploration priorities. We just heard almost 1 hour presentation from the Administrator on this whole subject.Anyway, I do hope your health will recover.Michael J.WinXP-Home SP2,AMD64 3500+,Abit AV8,Radeon X800Pro,36GB Raptor,1GB PC3200,Audigy 2

Steve,Thanks so much for all of your contributions to Fly! and kind-hearted exchanges within this forum. This is, after all, just a hobby and you are wise to step away from it under the circumstances.Get some rest...get some healing.
