The Legacy of NASA Astronaut Paul Richards

June 03, 2019

As he retires from the agency, there’s a lot to say about Paul Richards and his extraordinary career at NASA. To start, one could say that he is pretty well traveled.

In 2001, over about 13 days, he logged an impressive 5.3 million miles. Among Earth-bound travelers, this feat would be impossible. Paul, though, was far from Earth-bound at the time. He spent those 13 days on a mission to resupply the space station, roughly 240 miles overhead, aboard the space shuttle Discovery.
