Stockton astronaut gives to children's museum

STOCKTON, CA - Former shuttle astronaut Jose Hernandez, who grew up in the Stockton area, donated space program items to the Children's Museum of Stockton Friday.

Hernandez gave the museum a flight suit, an arm patch and an autographed photo, to be displayed in the museum's new exhibit that celebrates space travel and the planets.

Hernandez also spoke with about three dozen children, who were enjoying the museum's many activities. His message is one of fulfilling potential.

"I'm not only from Stockton, I'm just like them. I looked just like them," Hernandez said. "They should feel free to dream anything they want to achieve. I'm living proof anything is possible, if you put your mind to it, and work hard and get a good education."

He was engineer aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery, which circled the globe 217 times in the summer of 2009. He was in space 14 days and traveled more than 5.5 million miles.
