Tariq Malik posted a great blog entry on each of the STS-117 crewmember's nicknames:
Archambault's handle BRU (pronounced "brew") is rooted in bad luck.

"I had an unfortunate experience with a Bomb Rack Unit on an F-111 jet," the Atlantis shuttle pilot explained before launch. Unfortunate or not, the experience apparently made an impression.

Does anyone else think that Sturckow "CJ" sounds very much like Pete Conrad on the radio?
