Brian writes, "I recently had an opportunity to film a "tweet up" with NASA astronaut and U.S. Army Colonel Timothy "T.J." Creamer. During his talk, Colonel Creamer took a moment to answer the question, "What is the one science fictional item you wish you could really have in space with you."
In his answer, he revealed that he's a huge, old school science fiction fan, and used the opportunity to briefly discuss sf, Star Trek, and the way in which sf has influenced space exploration, science, and engineers. Oh, and he also answers the question."
