Last month, as­tro­naut Peggy Whit­son broke the United States record for “most time spent in space.” In Septem­ber, she re­turned to Earth af­ter a 288- day mis­sion at the In­ter­na­tional Space Sta­tion (ISS), bring­ing her to­tal space ex­pe­ri­ence to 655 days over­all. The 57-yearold has com­manded the ISS twice, the only fe­male as­tro­naut to do so. “Peggy is an in­spi­ra­tion to us all, es­pe­cially to young women in­ter­ested in or cur­rently pur­su­ing ca­reers in science, tech­nol­ogy, engi­neer­ing and math,” Pres­i­dent Trump said.
