"Having three more months to squeeze is just what I would wish for", she added.

Several firsts were achieved for AMF over the past year: the first STEM print for the Future Engineers program sponsored by NASA; the first print for NASA was an adaptor part for an Oxygen Generating System (OGS) used aboard the ISS during monthly oxygen level testing; the first commercial print was a microgravity wrench for Lowe's; the first print for the U.S. Navy, a hydroclip part used on radio wiring; and the first medical print with the fabrication of a finger splint design for a medical researcher.

Already poised to break the record for cumulative time spent in space by a U.S. astronaut, Whitson is set to extend her mission with an additional three months at the International Space Station. Peggy Whitson will stay with Jack Fischer and Fyodor Yurchikhin (Roscosmos); she will return on Earth with them on September 3. And on Sunday, she'll become the first woman to command the ISS twice.

Cassini spacecraft to begin 'grand finale' plunging into Saturn
Cassini also observed storms, lightning and clouds around Saturn for the first time. And if the mission is successful, there's a great deal we could learn.

NASA's International Space Station Programme Manager Kirk Shireman says that the skill and experience Whitson possesses make her a valuable asset aboard the International Space Station. But now it looks like Whitson's going to rack up even more flight time in lower Earth orbit than originally planned.

Peggy Whitson, American astronaut who remains at International Space Station since November 19, 2016, will stay in space for another three months to finish all scientific experiments started during Expedition 50.

Whitson, who holds a doctorate in biochemistry, is one of NASA's most experienced astronauts, making her third visit to the space station.

AT&T also has it's own " IT CAN WAIT " initiative, where drivers make a pledge to never drive while distracted. New legislation introduced in the state house would prohibit the use of hand held cell phones while driving.

Responding to the news of her time on ISS being extended, Whitson said in a statement released Wednesday by NASA: "This is great news".

Russia's downsizing decision means that only two people - Fischer and Yurchikhin -will be launching on the next Soyuz launch this month, instead of the usual three. Peggy Whitson, a pioneering NA...

"By extending the stay of one of NASA's most veteran astronauts, our research, our technology development, our commercial and our global partner communities will all benefit", Shireman added. Now she has a chance to grab another two - for female astronaut with longest single flight and for longest cumulated time in space among all NASA astronauts.

Yet this course is also the site of his worst nightmare - when Spieth put two in the water on No. 12 to card a quadruple bogey. The 23-year-old world number six has one win and two runner-up finishes in his three Masters appearances.
