Keynote speaker: Dr. Mae Jemison

Loved her Star Trek references and the stories of how women were shown to have special fitness for astronaut work, overcoming prejudice.

 

Dr. Mae Jemison is the Principal for the 100 Year Starship Project, providing guidance and direction for the foundation goal of ensuring the capabilities for a successful human journey to another star by 2112.

 

Dr. Jemison, physician, engineer, educator and entrepreneur, was the first woman of color in the world to go into space aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour and was a NASA astronaut for six years.
