This week, NASA announced two new inductees to the United States Astronaut Hall of Fame at Kennedy Space Center.
In recognition of their extraordinary accomplishments in furthering NASA’s mission of exploration and discovery, veteran astronauts Brian Duffy and Scott Parazynski have been selected for induction.
Duffy is a veteran Air Force pilot, astronaut and aerospace industry executive. He is a veteran of four space shuttle flights, including STS-92, which opened the door to construction of the International Space Station.
A medical doctor and pilot, Parazynski is a veteran of five space shuttle missions. He flew alongside legendary astronaut and U.S. Senator John Glenn and is credited with performing a critical, unrehearsed spacewalk to repair a space station solar array.
Duffy and Parazynski make up the 15th group of space shuttle astronauts to be inducted into the Hall of Fame, and both flew aboard the Space Shuttle Atlantis, which is now located at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.
They will be officially inducted during a public ceremony on Saturday, May 14, at 2pm, that will be attended by a roster of astronaut legends.
The ceremony is included with admission to the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. For more information, visit kennedyspacecenter.com.
