3 West Point grads part of upcoming space missions PDF Print E-mail
Retired Navy Capt. Scott Kelly is set to kick off a year in orbit with a March 27 launch to the International Space Station, but beginning in November, the ISS will take a decidedly Army slant.

Three retired colonels, all U.S. Military Academy graduates, will head skyward starting that month, with Tim Kopra (Class of 1985) off to the station for the more standard visit of about six months. Before Kopra returns to Earth in May 2016, Jeff Williams ('80) will launch in March, returning that September.

The same month Williams lands, Shane Kimbrough ('89) will head into orbit, scheduled to be gone until early 2017.
