From Logan County to Low Earth Orbit

Astronaut Terrence Wilcutt

Plenty of people dream of rocketing into space, but Kentuckian Terry Wilcutt is one of the rare individuals who’s made that dream come true. At the time we met him, the Russellville native had flown three missions on the space shuttle and was hoping for an assignment aboard the International Space Station. (Though he didn’t get to stay on board himself, Wilcutt did participate in the final space shuttle mission to prepare the station for its first permanent crew before switching to an administrative post at NASA.)

In this profile, Wilcutt talks about his experiences on past missions, which included two visits to Russia’s Mir space station; working with his Russian colleagues; and the future of America’s space program.

Still on Her Toes

Ballerina Helen Starr

Louisville Ballet audiences thrilled to the artistry of prima ballerina Helen Starr for 22 years. At 58, she reluctantly put aside her toe shoes because of nagging injuries. But she had no plans to stop moving: When we visited in 1998, Helen and her husband, choreographer Alun Jones, were looking forward to a new career teaching young dancers.
