Dr. Mae C. Jemison served six years as a NASA astronaut. During her time there, she performed experiments in material science, life sciences, and human adaptation to weightlessness. She also was the first real astronaut to appear on the Star Trek TV series and is represented by a LEGO figurine in the LEGO Women of NASA kit. Over the entire course of her exceptionally diverse career, she has drawn on her experiences as a physician, engineer, social scientist, and artist to drive global initiatives and advocacy to generate radical leaps in knowledge technology and social responsibility. Today Jemison leads 100 Year Starship (100YSS), a bold, far-reaching nonprofit initiative to assure that within the next 100 years, capabilities exist for human travel beyond our solar system to another star.
