        The Secret Life of Scientists & Engineers | Mae Jemison

        Meet astronaut Mae Jemison in this video profile from NOVA’s “The Secret Life of Scientists & Engineers.” As a child growing up in Chicago, Mae dreamed of traveling to outer space. Years later, while in medical school, she decided to follow that dream and applied to become a NASA astronaut. Mae eventually became the first African American woman to go into space. On her voyage, she brought a number of artifacts onboard that symbolized underrepresented figures in African American history. This resource is part of the NOVA: Secret Life of Scientists & Engineers Collection.
