  • The 9th annual gathering called "Spacefest" celebrates the science and the infinite possibilities of exploring the final frontier. This year, many astronauts and members of the U.S. space program will visit Tucson, including retired nurse Dee O'Hara. Starting in 1959, she played an important role in the NASA space program. Tony Perkins interviews O'Hara about being a NASA researcher, and an eye witness to some amazing history.
