U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame

NASA

Three veteran astronauts will be inducted into the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame this spring, joining the 99 others who hold the honor.

The new inductees include Bishop Kearney High School graduate Pam Melroy. 

During her career with NASA, the former Rochester resident completed three missions devoted to the construction of the International Space Station.  She is one of just two women to have commanded a space shuttle mission.
