El paso astronaut Danny Olivas has left NASA.
Sources at the Johnson Space Center say that Olivas' last day with NASA was yesterday.
The Burges High School and UTEP grad made two trips to the International Space Station and took part in a number of space walks while at the ISS.
NASA officails say "Danny's expertise in spacewalking and materials engineering will be sorely missed with his departure."
