Sondrin Kerman is one of Robert's bravest Astronauts under the Viking Space Program. Sondrin, along with Ted, Bob, and Jeb, was assigned to the J.E.R.K.I.T Program where Ted's flight crashed into the VAB and Jeb/Bob's flight neared disaster. Sondrin's carrier craft likely was lost as well. Robert ordered Sondrin into the Discovery Shuttle's cargo bay in orbit before re-entering the atmosphere. The Shuttle ran out of fuel and did not have enough lift to land, and prodded to crash a few kilometers northwest ok KSC. Miraculously, the cargo bay survived the crash and Sondrin lived to fly again.
