If there is one thing we know for sure about us, the BMW fans and owners, is that we all come from different backgrounds, but we have one thing in common:  a passion for our bimmers. So when ABC World News went to interview Andrew Feuster, astronaut aboard the space shuttle Atlantis, and found him in his garage working on a BMW M3, we knew we had to bring this upfront.

Sure, there are no breaking news here nor any cool spy photos, but it is great to see that BMW fans can be found on all the social scales, even in the NASA world. Andrew is a car guy like many of us, but thanks to his M.S. in geophysics from Purdue University and the Ph.D from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, he managed to fulfil his dream.

Beside all the geeky organizations he’s part of, Andrew also is a proud member of the BMW Car Club of America. As an interesting fact, in his youth, Andrew paid his way through college by restoring old cars.

Great to see that his passion for the BMW M Power engine has not faded away, despite the high-tech things he gets to play with in the space. Watch his interview on ABC News
