Congrats, Peggy! Flight Director Brian Smith, Capcom astronaut Jessica Meir along with astronaut Jeff Williams monitor activities in Mission Control as President Donald Trump, First Daughter Ivanka Trump and NASA astronaut Kate Rubins make a special Earth-to-space call from the Oval Office to personally congratulate NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson for her record-breaking stay aboard the International Space Station (@ISS). Whitson officially set the U.S. record for most cumulative days in space. She is the first woman to command the space station twice, and holds the record for most spacewalks conducted by a female astronaut.
