How An Astronaut And His Wife Bonded Over Two Sweet Old Trucks

Truck YeahThe trucks are good!

This story has everything: space, romance, an International Scout II, and a first-gen Ford Bronco!

The Wall Street Journal’s A.J. Baime recently caught up with former astronaut Dr. Garrett Reisman to learn a little about the guy’s life beyond exploring space. I mean, “below.” You can’t really go beyond space... I digress.


Anyway Reisman’s made two trips to the International Space Station and is now in charge of crew operations for SpaceX. He also has a bitchin’ 1975 International Scout II and an obviously cool wife with a 1969 Ford Bronco. Check out their story on WSJ right here.
