Breakfast with Canada's First Female Astronaut - August 1st, 2007
Aboard the space shuttle Discovery in 1992, Dr. Roberta Bondar became the world’s first astronaut-neurologist. For over a decade she researched new connections between recovery from unusual environments and neurological illnesses. Time Magazine named her as one of Canada’s Best Explorers in 2003.
Dr. Bondar is committed to creating awareness of this planet and the implications of the human footprint. Her intimate understanding of space, her passion for education, and her interest in blending science and the arts make her presentations lively, engaging and thought-provoking for audiences of all ages.
The H.R. MacMillan Space Centre is delighted to welcome Dr. Bondar’s perspective on the challenges facing our place in the universe.
