NASA Astronaut Group 13 (the Hairballs) was a group of 23 astronauts, the pilots are: Kenneth Cockrell, Irsi Bardulla Eileen Collins, William G. Gregory, James D. Halsell, Charles J. Precourt, Richard A. Searfoss, Terrence W. Wilcutt [1] The group name came from its selection of a black cat as a mascot, to play against the traditional unlucky connotations of the number 13.[2]
