Comments about PBS Rocket Scientist Franklin Chang-Diaz: NOVA scienceNOW 2009, Episode 3 DVD:

Very inspiring. The article on endurance, the rising of Diaz from 3rd world country to astronaut to working with plasma rockets as well as the quest to predict earthly weather with information with solar weather data (NASA's Themis project) is very exciting.
