WASHINGTON, D.C. (BNO NEWS) — President Barack Obama will meet the crew of NASA’s Space Shuttle Endeavour on Thursday afternoon, the White House said.
A brief notice from the White House said Obama will meet the crew in the Oval Office at 5 p.m. Eastern time. Further details were not immediately released.
NASA said it had no information on the meeting.
The Space Shuttle Endeavour and its six astronauts returned from a 14-day journey in space on Sunday. The STS-130 mission to the International Space Station included three spacewalks and the installation of the Tranquility node, a module that provides additional room for crew members and many of the space station’s life support and environmental control systems.
George Zamka commanded the flight and was joined on the mission by Pilot Terry Virts and Mission Specialists Kathryn Hire, Stephen Robinson, Nicholas Patrick and Robert Behnken.
The astronauts are currently in Washington, D.C. for a four-day visit to NASA Headquarters.
