Astronaut and UC Davis alumnus Steve Robinson turns the camera on his reflective visor during his historic repair job on the space shuttle Discovery on Aug. 3. Earth and the underbelly of the shuttle and its heat-shielding tiles — where Robinson removed a pair of protruding gap fillers — are seen in his visor. Robinson and his crewmates landed safely Tuesday morning at Edwards Air Force Base in California. UC Davis has created a special online spotlight section with news stories, features and factoids about UC Davis' own "Aggienaut in Space." For details, see
