Physician pursued space career after seeing flier Houston Chronicle

When Lee Morin was a child, he didn’t dream of being an astronaut. He never gave it a thought until he was a Navy physician completing his residency and saw a flier advertising how to apply to the space program. In 1996, haunted by the flier, he decided to give it a try to avoid any possible regrets. Soon after applying at NASA, Morin was invited for an interview. Six months later, he was reporting to duty in Houston.
