Space Station Imagination

NASA’s International Space Station Trailers Exhibit, “Space Station Imagination,” is coming to NASA Ames Research Center May 18 to June 8. The exhibit is coordinated by NASA as part of the Agency’s nationwide community outreach program. The exhibit provides a glimpse of what it is like to live and work aboard this international orbiting laboratory. Space Station Imagination is free to the public and accessible to people with disabilities.

Astronaut Janice Voss is a native of South Bend, Ind., but considers Rockford, Ill., to be her hometown. She holds a master of science degree in electrical engineering and a doctorate in aeronautics/astronautics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Voss became an astronaut in 1991 and is qualified for flight assignment as a mission specialist. She served aboard STS-57 in 1993, STS-63 in 1995, STS-83 and STS-94 in 1997 and STS-99 in 2000. Voss is a veteran of five space flights and has logged more than 49 days in space, traveling 18.8 million miles in 779 Earth orbits.
