Shuttle veterans Buchli, Kavandi to enter Astronaut Hall of Fame

A member of NASA's "Thirty-Five New Guys" and the 35th woman to fly into space will enter the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame in April.

James Buchli, who joined the "TFNG," NASA's first class of shuttle astronauts, in 1978, and Janet Kavandi, who today leads a NASA research center in Ohio, will be enshrined in the Astronaut Hall of Fame as its 2019 inductees at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in Florida. A public ceremony on Saturday, April 6, 2019, followed by a gala dinner hosted by the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation, will welcome Buchli and Kavandi into the Hall's ranks.

Astronaut Hall of Fame adds space shuttle fliers Jim Buchli, Janet Kavandi

Although their own space missions came decades after the first humans landed on the moon, Jim Buchli and Janet Kavandi have now joined the same ranks as Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin.

Veterans of NASA's space shuttle program, Buchli and Kavandi became the 98th and 99th space travelers to be inducted into the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame on Saturday (April 6). A public ceremony held under the display of the retired space shuttle Atlantis at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in Florida brought together Gemini, Apollo, Skylab and space shuttle astronauts to welcome Buchli and Kavandi into the Hall.
