The U.S. space agency says it will provide live television coverage of the 2009 U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame induction ceremony.
The 3 p.m. EDT Saturday ceremony will take place at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in Florida. Being inducted are former astronauts George Nelson, one of only four space shuttle astronauts to fly untethered in space; William Shepherd, commander of the first crew to live aboard the International Space Station; and Jim Wetherbee, commander of the longest docked shuttle-Mir mission.
NASA officials said CNN reporter John Zarrella will host the event. More than 20 hall of fame astronauts are expected to attend, including Scott Carpenter, Walt Cunningham, Jim Lovell and Bob Crippen.
