Kay Hire Aboard Endeavour

Mission specialist Kay Hire floats aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour (OV-105) on her second day of flight on the STS-130 Mission. Hire and the rest of the crew spent 13 days in space in February 2010 during which they installed two significant sections of the International Space Station. Hire was largely in charge of operating the Endeavour's robotic arm to move payloads from the shuttle to the station, but she also assisted in installing the new parts.
