The public is invited to share in the excitement of the latest Shuttle
mission when the STS-109 crew discusses its flight to the Hubble Space
Telescope at 5:30 p.m., Friday, March 29 at Space Center Houston.

In a special ceremony in Space Center Houston’s Iwerks Theater, the
astronauts will receive their NASA Space Flight Medals.

The Columbia crew, Commander Scott Altman, Pilot Duane Carey, and
Mission Specialists Nancy Currie, John Grunsfeld, Jim Newman, Rick
Linnehan and Mike Massimino, will show slides and a video of their
mission, which included five successful spacewalks to upgrade the
orbiting observatory.

The event, sponsored by NASA’s Johnson Space Center, begins promptly at
5:30 p.m. Admission is free and the event is open to the public on a
first-come, first-served basis. Once the 580-seat Iwerks Theater is
full, additional guests can be seated in an adjacent area to view the
program electronically.
