"I would dream about being the first person on the moon, and taught myself the names of all the planets." -- Roberta Bondar
Even as a child, Roberta Bondar dreamed of the stars. And when she grew up, she became Canada's first woman astronaut -- and the first neurologist ever to go to space. In this biography, read about her amazing accomplishments: her many degrees, her skydiving and parachuting certification, her landscape photography, and, of course, her time with NASA, first as a Payload Specialist on the space shuttle Discovery, and then as the head of space medicine.
