Astronauts to Relive Mission for the Public Dec. 10

The astronauts of space shuttle Discovery's STS-120 mission will relive their flight for the public, friends and coworkers in a special post-flight presentation at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 10 in the Mazda Theater at Space Center Houston.

Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Once the 580-seat theater fills, guests will be seated in an adjacent area to watch the program on closed-circuit television.

During the program, the astronauts will give a first-hand account of their recent flight to the International Space Station. The crew presentation will include photos, video and a question and answer session. Following the presentation, there will be a brief autograph session.

STS-120 was a 6.2-million-mile mission to the International Space Station launched Oct. 23. During the mission, the crew delivered the Harmony module and repaired damage done to a solar array as it was being redeployed. After 15 days, space shuttle Discovery landed in Florida completing its 34th mission and circling the Earth 238 times.

Retired Air Force Col. Pam Melroy commanded STS-120. Melroy, a veteran shuttle pilot, was the second woman to command a shuttle. Marine Corps Col. George Zamka served as pilot. The flight's mission specialists were Scott Parazynski, Army Col. Doug Wheelock, Stephanie Wilson and Paolo Nespoli, a European Space Agency astronaut from Italy.

Unfortunately, these post-flight events are not often recorded by NASA for later playback.

Usually when the shuttle crew does its post flight presentation at NASA's HQ in D.C., it is taped and broadcast on NASA-TV. I have seen many of these presentations on NASA-TV and taped them that way. It's usually found in the 10am ET time slot on the public NASA-TV station which is after the video file program from 9-10 AM.
