Surrounded by her family, U.S. astronaut Shannon W. Lucid answers
questions from KSC Public Affairs official Lisa Malone about her
record-setting stay aboard the Russian Space Station Mir. Standing
behind Lucid are, from left, husband Michael, daughter Kawai, son
Michael, son-in-law Jeff Richeson, and daughter Shandara. Lucid
returned to Earth earlier today aboard the orbiter Atlantis, wrapping
up a 188-day spaceflight that represents a U.S. long-duration
spaceflight record as well as the longest stay in space by a
woman. Lucid and the other five STS-79 astronauts are spending the
night here in the Operations and Checkout Building before returning to
Johnson Space Center in Houston. Atlantis touched down on Runway 15 of
KSC's Shuttle Landing Facility at 8:13:15 a.m. EDT.
