School-wide "Zoom" call with Colonel Pam Melroy, a retired US Air Force test pilot and former NASA astronaut and Space Shuttle commander, who holds a Bachelor’s degree in Physics and Astronomy from Wellesley College and a Master of Science degree in Earth and Planetary Sciences from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
She is a veteran of Operation Just Cause and Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm, with over 200 combat and combat support hours.
She has logged more than 6,000 hours flight time in more than 50 different aircraft.
Colonel Melroy flew three missions in space: as Space Shuttle pilot during STS-92 in 2000 and STS-112 in 2002, and as Space Shuttle Commander during STS-120 in 2007. All three missions were assembly missions to build the International Space Station.
One of only two women to command the Space Shuttle, she has logged more than 38 days in space.
Colonel Melroy retired from the Air Force in 2007, and left NASA in August 2009.
