US Astronaut, Col. Michael Fincke’s Trip to Assam with His Family

On September 1, 2009, US Astronaut Col. Michael E. Fincke visited Assam & Meghalaya as an official guest of the two North Eastern States. He was accompanied by his wife Renita and three children, Chandra, Tarali, and Surya, as well as his in-laws, Rupesh & Probha Saikia. Mike whom we fondly refer to as “Axomor Juwai” and his family were escorted with full police security throughout his tour of Assam and Meghalaya. On September 2, 2009, the Chief Minister of Assam Tarun Gogoi felicitated Mike for his remarkable achievements and his special contribution to the students of Assam. Mike handed over to the Chief Minister an Assamese Gamosa flown in the International Space Station which was autographed by several astronauts. It may be noted that in September 2008, Mike reached out from aboard the International Space Station (Expedition 18) to the school and college students of Assam and the North Eastern States to inspire them and create awareness of space exploration. Friends of Assam and Seven Sisters along with the US Government, NASA, and Government of India and the state governments made this extraordinary feat possible with their meticulous planning and execution. In his two-week tour of Assam and Meghalaya, Mike was felicitated by a large number of organizations in public ceremonies attended by thousands of people. He also participated in several seminars at the IIT, Guwahati.
