Dr. Baker flew onboard the Atlantis and Columbia space shuttles between 1989 and 1995.

This includes Apollo 16 Astronaut Charlie Duke, the youngest man to walk on the Moon; four crew members from STS-135, the last space shuttle mission; Romanian Cosmonaut Dorin Prunariu and NASA Astronaut Shannon Lucid, who logged a total of 223 days in space.
