Always Looking Up: Nancy Grace Roman, Astronomer

First Nancy Grace dreamed of becoming an astronomer. Then she dreamed of seeing farther into space than anyone ever had seen before. Nancy Grace Roman had to overcome obstacles like weak eyesight and teachers who discouraged women from pursuing astronomy to achieve her dreams, which included a position as chief of astronomy at NASA. And then she had an idea... a telescope in orbit which would finally allow her and other astronomers to look deeper into the reaches of space than anyone had ever imagined....

This inspiring picture book biography celebrates the "Mother of Hubble," the groundbreaking astronomer who led the NASA team that built the Hubble Space Telescope. This testament to women in scientific careers and record of an important NASA milestone also celebrates women like Roman who, driven by passion, refuse to give up on their dreams.
