Shuttle astronauts Shannon Lucid, the only U.S. woman to live on board the Russian space station Mir, and Jerry Ross, the first person to launch seven times from Earth into space, were enshrined in the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame on Saturday (May 3) at a public ceremony held under Space Shuttle Atlantis at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in Florida. Between them, the pair logged nearly 7,000 hours in space.

The Astronaut Hall of Fame is located at Kennedy Space Center and is included with admission to the visitor’s complex. The public exhibit contains displays dedicated to our nation’s astronauts, including the world’s largest collection of personal memorabilia.
