STS-120 mission specialist Doug Wheelock has been assigned to the Expedition 21 space station crew.

Before he launches though, he will take part in a different type of NASA expedition, climbing to the base camp on Mt. Everest in support of his STS-120 spacewalking partner Scott Parazynksi's attempt to summit the mountain.

Thanks, Robert... great news.

Would you happen to know the other EXP-21 crew members?

I do not know who any of the other crew members will be yet. I spoke to Wheelock at the STS-123 crew return, who confirmed the assignment. I should have asked him who he was flying with, but sadly I didn't think of it.

Will Wheelock fly one of the 6 months stints or one of the shorter ones?

By Expedition 21 they should all be ~6 month missions. The shorter stays end next year.

BTW, Exp 21A/B is scheduled to be on site during the final shuttle visit.

All times are CT (US)
