Before Mae Jemison became an astronaut, she went to medical school and joined the Peace Corps. But she never forgot her childhood dream to travel to outer space, so she applied to NASA’s astronaut training program in 1985. Then, on September 12, 1992, Mae flew into space with six other astronauts aboard the space shuttle Endeavour and made history!A special section at the back of the book includes extras on subjects like history and math, plus a fun time line filled with interesting trivia facts about space!
