Readers will blast off on a trip through the history of space exploration, told through the stories of women who have fought to be a part of the manned space flight revolution. These ten biographies begin hundreds of years ago with Caroline Herschel, one of the first women involved in mapping the heavens. In our own times, women like Sally Ride, Ellen Ochoa, Julie Payette, Roberta Bondar, Chiaki Mukai, and Kalpana Chawla have completed grueling training programs and flown on space missions, proving that gender is no limitation beyond the atmosphere. Readers will be enthralled and entranced by a wealth of fun space facts, the lively accounts of space missions, and the truly inspiring examples of the steep challenges faced by women, past and present, who dreamed of reaching the stars.
