Sitting on a Rocket

and I feel fine

Susan mastered stress management from her days as a Navy jet pilot, test pilot, and astronaut. What can be more stressful than being the first woman pilot to join an F-14 Tomcat squadron and then being faced with multiple system failures on her very first flight. Or, how about training more than 12 hours a day for a year and then riding a rocket out of this world. Susan can speak about stress management techniques that work in the most demanding situations.
