female astronauts you remember today?
sort by best latest
Oh!- Kalpana Chawla. I remember that memorial service for Shuttle Columbia with ministers/rabbis from several religions. The new female astronauts chosen in 2013 are becoming better known, because they will fly to Mars. I hope they will be ready.
Yes-- Chawla. I think there were some quesions about her performance, but it was later confirmed that she made some significant contributions.
I remember the Challenger disaster. All seven crew were killed but Know very little about any of them except that one wad a schoolteacher who taught the first lesson from space.
Thanks for that information - 21 years after Challenger! I am happy she went up. Cool that she taught on the Flathead Reservation.
I was listening to the radio and typing a report when it happened and was announced. I never recovered fully from the shock. The photo of the exhaust in the sky was on TV all night.
I remember that too. What a shock that was!
Judith Resnik on that flight was from my state - from Cleveland. It's haunting.
