PERSONAL DATA: Born October 30, 1964, in Belleville, Illinois. Enjoys soccer, reading, cooking, travel, water activities.

EDUCATION: Graduated from Belleville West High School, Belleville, Illinois, in 1982; received a bachelor degree in physics and a master's degree in electrical engineering from the University of Missouri-Rolla in 1986 and 1990, respectively, and a doctorate from the School of Material Science and Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1996.

ORGANIZATIONS: The Explorers Club, Women in Aerospace, American Association for the Advancement of Science.

SPECIAL HONORS: Several team and teaching, and alumni awards, NASA Space Flight Medal (2002, 2009) and the NASA Distinguished Service Medal (2009).

EXPERIENCE: During 1986 to 1991, Dr. Magnus worked for McDonnell Douglas Aircraft Company as a stealth engineer, where she worked on internal research and development and later, the Navy's A-12 Attack Aircraft program studying the effectiveness of RADAR signature reduction techniques. From 1991 to 1996, Dr. Magnus completed her thesis work, which was supported by NASA-Lewis Research Center through a Graduate Student Fellowship and involved investigations on materials of interest for "Scandate" thermionic cathodes.

NASA EXPERIENCE: Selected by NASA in April 1996, Dr. Magnus reported to the Johnson Space Center in August 1996. She completed 2 years of training and evaluation and is qualified for flight assignment as a mission specialist. From January 1997 to May 1998, Dr. Magnus worked in the Astronaut Office Payloads/Habitability Branch. Her duties involved working with ESA, NASDA and Brazil on science freezers, glove boxes and other facility-type payloads. In May 1998, Dr. Magnus was assigned as a "Russian Crusader," which involved traveling to Russia in support of hardware testing and operational products development. In August 2000, she served as a CAPCOM for the International Space Station. In August 2001, she was assigned to STS-112. In October 2002, Dr. Magnus flew aboard STS-112. In completing her first space flight, she logged a total of 10 days, 19 hours, and 58 minutes in space. Following STS-112, Dr. Magnus was assigned to work with the Canadian Space Agency to prepare the Special Dexterous Manipulator robot for installation on the ISS. She was also involved in Return To Flight activities. In July 2005, Dr. Magnus was assigned to the ISS Expedition Corps and began training for a future space station long-duration mission. She flew to the space station with the crew of STS-126, launching on November 14 and arriving at the station on November 16, 2008. On her second flight, Dr. Magnus spent 4.5 months aboard the space station and returned to Earth with the crew of STS-119 on March 28, 2009. Following her space station mission, Dr. Magnus served 6 months at NASA HQ in Washington, D.C., working in the Exploration Systems Misison Directorate. Dr. Magnus has been named as a mission specialist on the crew of STS-135/ULF7, a station cargo delivery mission that will carry the Multi Purpose Logistics Module (MPLM) Raffaello. The crew of STS-135 has been in training since September 2010, and the launch is currently scheduled for the summer of 2011.

SPACE FLIGHT EXPERIENCE: STS-112 Atlantis (October 7 to October 18, 2002) launched from and returned to land at the Kennedy Space Center, Florida. STS-112 was an International Space Station assembly mission during which the crew conducted joint operations with the Expedition 5 by delivering and installing the S-one truss (the third piece of the space station 11-piece integrated truss structure). Dr. Magnus operated the space station robotic arm during the three spacewalks required to outfit and activate the new component. The crew also transferred cargo between the two vehicles and used the shuttle thruster jets during two maneuvers to raise the station orbit. STS-112 was the first shuttle mission to use a camera on the external tank, providing a live view of the launch to flight controllers and NASA TV viewers. The mission was accomplished in 170 orbits, traveling 4.5 million miles in 10 days, 19 hours, 58 minutes.

STS-126 launched on November 14, 2008 and arrived at the station 2 days later to start Dr. Magnus' participation in Expedition 18 as the flight engineer 2 and science officer. The shuttle delivered all the additional components necessary to expand the International Space Station to support a six person crew. During the course of Expedition 18, Dr. Magnus and Capt. Mike Fincke worked to install this new equipment - a water regeneration system, two new crew quarters, an advanced resistive exercise device and a second toilet. In addition, several new payload racks were installed and activated. Overall, the mission completed the upgrade required to begin six person crew operations in May 2009; supported two Orlan-based spacewalks and completed twice the amont of science originally planned for the increment. Dr. Magnus returned home on STS-119, which, while there, delivered and installed the final solar array to the station. STS-119 landed on March 28, 2009, bringing Dr. Magnus safely back to Earth after a stay of 4.5 months and traveling 50,304,000 miles.

Currently serving as a Mission specialist on STS-135 the final flight of the STS program.
