Astronaut Peggy Whitson

U.S. astronaut Peggy Whitson returned to Earth 3 September after spending more time at the International Space Station than anyone else in U.S. history – 665 days, nearly two years. She served as commander twice and also holds the record for most space walks by a woman (10), most hours outside the vehicle (60) and oldest woman in space (57). She was formerly Chief Astronaut of the United States. (So why do men keep saying women just don’t have what it takes to be scientists?)
