In the article, Astronaut on space shuttle Atlantis becomes a father, found at, from the BBC, it described U.S. Astronaut Randolph Bresnik who recently became a father during his space voyage last Sunday. He is due to return in a few days to meet his newly born daughter Abigail, his three-year-old adopted son from Ukraine, and his wife, Rebecca. Readers might wonder what's it like to have a daughter while in space and how he felt when he heard the news. They might also wonder how his wife felt having a baby while her husband was so very far away. Everyone surely wishes Randolph Bresnik a safe journey and a very happy return home.

  1. I'm sure Bresnik was excited, but at the same time I imagine he would be disappointed. Most fathers want to be there to see their newborn baby girl. How does this story affect society? In other words, "what matters" in it?
