Chandra Sketches: Clara's Launch

Narrator (Clara Arcand): My mom works for NASA, for a telescope that studies X-rays from space. She told me about how the telescope, called Chandra, was launched into space aboard the Space Shuttle. That shuttle flight had a woman commander named Eileen Collins. There was another woman astronaut, Cady Coleman, who used a robotic arm to put the telescope into space. (I also learned about them in school from my teacher, Mrs. Panciocco!) These women studied Science and Math and do really interesting things.

My mom knows these women, and it is great that I get to learn about them. Maybe I will be a scientist some day. Or an astronaut. Or maybe I could work for NASA like my mom.

By Clara, age 9.
