NASA Corrects Holiday Greeting Release
Johnson Space Center, Houston
HOUSTON - A Dec. 13 NASA media advisory incorrectly said the public could select a NASA-themed e-postcard to send to friends. That feature, which is planned for the future, is not yet available.
The public can, however, send personal holiday greetings to the 16th resident crew of the International Space Station. NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson, the first woman to command the station, and her crewmates currently are orbiting Earth 16 times each day. Whitson and Flight Engineer Yuri Malenchenko, a Russian cosmonaut, have been in space since Oct. 10. Flight Engineer Dan Tani, a U.S. astronaut, joined them Oct. 25.
