Astronaut Mae Jemison wants us to "look up"

"The sky connects us. What's above us unites us." The science team met astronaut Dr. Mae Jemison this week, the first woman of color in space.

Dr. Mae Jemison fulfilled her childhood dream of becoming a scientist. She then became the first woman of color in space, flying aboard Space Shuttle Endeavor in Sept., 1992., breaking a barrier she noticed as a little girl. She is also an entrepreneur and director of the 100-year Starship Program, which works to make human space travel beyond the solar system a reality within the next century.
