Shane Kimbrough was selected by NASA in 2004.  He completed his first spaceflight in 2008 on STS-126, where he spent almost 16 days on the mission to expand the crew living quarters to accommodate a six-member crew on the International Space Station (ISS).  He performed two spacewalks during this mission.  On his second spaceflight, Kimbrough launched to the ISS on the Russian Soyuz MS-02 spacecraft from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.  This mission lasted 173 days as part of Expeditions 49 and 50, where he performed four spacewalks and numerous science and maintenance activities.  He most recently served as commander of the NASA/SpaceX Crew-2 Dragon spacecraft, which launched from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.  Once on the ISS, Kimbrough served as Flight Engineer of Expedition 65/66.  He performed three spacewalks during the 199-day mission.  Kimbrough now has a total of 388 days in space.

A Graduate of West Point, Kimbrough was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Army, entered the U.S. Army Aviation School and spent many years with the Army leading up to an assignment at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, where he commanded an Apache helicopter company as well as the Regimental headquarters company.  After completing a Masters’ at Georgia Tech, he was assigned as an assistant professor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the United States Military Academy.  Other military schools include the Army Parachutist Course, Army Jumpmaster Course, German Airborne Course, the Combined Arms Services Staff School and the Command and General Staff College.  He then joined the NASA team at the Johnson Space Center  and  was assigned to NASA’s Aircraft Operations Division at Ellington Field in Houston.

Kimbrough has received many awards and honors including the NASA Outstanding Leadership Medal and inducted into the Georgia Military Hall of Fame in 2021.  He and his wife Robbie have three children.  He enjoys baseball, golf, weightlifting and running.

KCA Summer Relaxed Dress Code
It's summer and that means our club's relaxed dress code policy is in effect Memorial Day through September!  Sorry, this doesn't mean cut offs and flip flops, but for men, polo shirts (the club polo shirt is even better) with slacks is great and women can easily identify with Resort Casual wear.  We hope you will come to a meeting in person soon and enjoy a comfortable relaxed atmosphere at the Loudermilk Center!
