Where in the World is Smokey?

Preparing for Liftoff in Florida

Astronaut Commander Dominic Gorie earned his master's degree in aviation sciences from the UT Space Institute in 1990. In March 2008, he led the crew of shuttle mission STS-123 on its 16-day mission on the Endeavor. It was his fourth shuttle flight. He flew on Discovery in 1998 and on Endeavour in 2000 and 2001.

Jo Anne Galluzzi-Clarke, who works in telephone services at UT Knoxville, requested this shirt for Gorie and sent it to him via her brother, Michael Galluzzi, who works for NASA at Kennedy Space Center. The shirt didn't make it to Gorie in time to pass through payload quarantine and go along with him on STS-123.

"Instead, NASA gave approval for my brother to give Commander Gorie the T-shirt at the 'STS-123 Astronaut return to Kennedy Space Center' meeting, which he did," Galluzzi-Clarke said. "Commander Gorie was thrilled with the 'Where in the World is Smokey T.'"
