NASA's Johnson Space Center helped NASA commemorate the 10th anniversary of a continuous human presence aboard the International Space Station with a roundtable discussion on Oct. 27. Participants included Peggy Whitson, NASA chief astronaut, Expedition 5 flight engineer and Expedition 16 commander; Mike Lopez-Alegria, NASA astronaut and Expedition 14 commander; and Clay Anderson, NASA astronaut and Expedition15 and 16 flight engineer. On Nov. 2, 2000, Expedition 1 Commander Bill Shepherd and Flight Engineers Sergei Krikalev and Yuri Gidzenko became the first residents of the space station. Since then, 200 explorers have visited the orbiting complex, 15 nations have contributed modules and hardware, and more than 600 experiments have been conducted aboard the station.
