Astronaut Hall of Fame adds three space station-era astronauts still making history

Typically, the space explorers inducted annually into the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame do not add significantly to their records between the time when they are announced and when they are enshrined. This year’s class, though, was anything but typical.

Celebrated at a public ceremony held at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in Florida on Saturday (Nov. 13), Michael Lopez-Alegria, Pamela Melroy and Scott Kelly became the 100th, 101st and 102nd astronauts to enter the hall. The celebration, delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic, came almost two years after they were chosen for the honor.
