IF Anna Fisher is indeed assigned to the STS-129 mission, would this be the longest gap (24 years) between a first and second spaceflight for an ACTIVE NASA astronaut?

John Glenn was a payload specialist for the STS-95 flight and was not an active astronaut at the time. His gap was 37 years!

Isn't she called Anna Tingle now that she is divorced?

As her NASA biography illustrates, Dr. Fisher retains use of her married name.

I did notice this although some other websites list her as still being married to her ex-husband who has now remarried.

All times are CT (US)
