PT - 4 of the 6 were US citizens and 1 was a dual national! All went up in either US or Russian spacecraft. Hardly a great patriotic achievement for us, I would think.

There was another AAC officer - Tim Mace who made it to the starting line as well.

Would that not make her a "Cosmonaut"? (ie she likes to read Cosmo :D )

You know when us Brits get all upset by Hollywood movies underplay UK contributions to e.g. WW2 (U571, SPR, etc). Does that entitle us to get all patriotic when a British-born (but US citizen) goes into space (on a US or Russian spaceship) to a (US/Russian/others except UK) spacestation?

I remember the BBC news fawning over Sellers and Foale like they were some great British heroes, that's all.
