About Dr. Dave Williams:

Dr. Dave has led the sort of life that most people only dream of.He has set records for spacewalking. He has lived undersea for weeks at a time. He has saved lives as an emergency doctor, launched into the stratosphere twice and performed surgery in zero gravity. But if you ask him how he became so accomplished, he'll say: "I'm just a curious kid from Saskatchewan." He learned to scuba dive at only 12 years old, became a doctor despite academic struggles, and overcame stiff odds and fierce competition to join the ranks of astronauts he had idolized as a child.
