Michael Duncan

NASA Statement from Michael Obrien, Office of International and Interagency Relations Associate Administrator:

"The NASA community was saddened by the news of Dr. Michael Duncan's untimely and tragic death. Mike provided invaluable support in the space medicine field for NASA's space shuttle and International Space Station astronauts. He was one of the lead flight surgeons who supported the first landing by American astronauts in a Soyuz vehicle in Kazakhstan for Expedition 6 in May 2003. As the lead for the NASA team that provided assistance to the Chilean government's rescue of 33 trapped miners in a copper and gold mine near Copiapo, Chile, in 2010, Dr. Duncan exemplified NASA's commitment to bring spaceflight experience back down to the ground and utilize it for people here on Earth. Our condolences go out to his family at this difficult time."

Keith's note: Visitation will be held on Friday from 5 to 8 pm at the Gawler Funeral Home, 5130 Wisconsin Ave, Bethesda, Md. 202 966-6400. Services will be held at Gawler Funeral Home at 11 am on Saturday.
