In a special ceremony in Space Center Houston’s IMAX Theater, the astronauts will receive their NASA Space Flight Medals, and other space workers will be recognized with awards from Johnson Space Center Acting Director Roy S. Estess. The Discovery crew, Commander Jim Wetherbee, Pilot Jim Kelly, Mission Specialists Andy Thomas and Paul Richards, and Shepherd will narrate a slide show and video presentation highlighting their recent missions.

The event begins promptly at 6:30 p.m. and is free and open to the public. Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Space Center Houston doors open at 6:00 p.m. to admit visitors; those arriving after the IMAX theater is filled may watch the presentation in an adjacent theater at the visitor center.
