She has ventured where few have gone before and, as Canada's first woman astronaut, she has seen the "Blue Planet" from a spectacular vantage point in space. A neurologist and scientist, she served as a Payload Specialist on the January 1992 flight of the shuttle Discovery, where she was involved in a complex set of microgravity experiments. Her enthusiasm and the high standards she has set throughout her career are an inspiration to Canada's scientists, present and future.
