Scott "Too Tall" Parazynski
Space Shuttle Mission Specialist

Mission(s): STS-66
STS-86
STS-95
STS-100
STS-120
  Date signed: December 10, 2007
Comment: Parazynski was the first astronaut to be born
after the first American flew in space in 1961.
He earned his nickname for being "too tall" to
fly in the Russian Soyuz but had he been just
an inch shorter, Paraznyski would have been
unable to reach a solar array during STS-120.
