Astronaut Pam

Countdown to Commander

DVD - 2009
Astronaut Pam
"Pamela Anne Melroy (born 17 September 1961) is a retired United States Air Force officer and a former NASA astronaut. She served as pilot on Space Shuttle missions STS-92 and STS-112 and commanded mission STS-120. [...] Melroy was selected as an astronaut candidate in 1994 and trained as a shuttle pilot. She has piloted two space shuttle missions, both visits to the International Space Station: STS-92 in 2000 and STS-112 in 2002. On June 19, 2006, NASA announced that Melroy would command the STS-120 mission, making her the second woman to command a space shuttle mission (after Eileen Collins). The STS-120 crew visited the station during Expedition 16, commanded by Peggy Whitson. Whitson is the first female ISS commander, making the STS-120 mission the first time that two female mission commanders were in orbit at the same time"--Wikipedia. "The sky is not the limit! Ride along with Commander Pam Melroy and her crew aboard Space Shuttle Discovery on an exciting journey to the International Space Station. Float in zero gravity, and strap in for MACH 25 on a space trip of a lifetime"--Container.
