Your count of 49 agrees with the list I quickly pulled together last year of all women who had flown in space as of June 2010 (which I believe is still current) should you add McAuliffe.

With the STS-era concluded, which astronaut flew the most missions onboard a space shuttle (my guess: Jerry L Ross with 7 missions: STS-61B, 27, 37, 55, 74, 88 and STS-110)?

And Franklin Chang-Diaz, also with seven missions: 61-C, 34R, 46, 60, 75, 91 and 111.

Have to ask Wetherbee next time he's in the area whether or not he would have gone for a seventh mission had Columbia not happened.

So that makes three NASA astronauts to have launched seven times?

Only if you count John Young's launch from the moon.

I don't recall if this has been asked, but were there any astronauts who flew aboard all five space shuttle orbiters?

Am I correct in that Anatoly Solovyev and Nikolai Budarin are the only astro/cosmonauts to have launched on the shuttle but not landed - with Budarin having two shuttle launches and no shuttle landings to his credit? (Of course, Budarin would have landed on STS-114 pre-Columbia.)

Curt Brown says he has the most amount of flights in the least amount of time.
