Three Inductees Join Astronaut Hall of Fame

Florida Today reports that three inductees have joined the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame.

When Eileen Collins went on a very important job interview in 1990, she wore a suit in a shade she calls “as close to NASA blue as I could find.”

The retired astronaut (yes, she got the job) went with that same color — actually, the same suit — today for her induction into the U.S. Hall Astronaut of Fame.

Along with shuttle veterans Curt Brown and Bonnie Dunbar, Collins joined the elite ranks of space exploration heroes including Neil Armstrong, John Glenn, Alan Shepard, Jim Lovell, Sally Ride and Scott Carpenter. The 2013 Hall of Fame Class is the first to include two women.

The Hall of Fame is operated by the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.
