Spectacular Women in Space is a collection of ten biographies featuring women who have made an important contribution to the exploration of space. Blast off on a trip through time, told in the stories of women who have made their mark. Your journey begins hundreds of years ago with one of the first women involved in mapping the heavens. Then you will meet an aviation heroine who participated in early experiments on the body's reaction to space conditions, and the first women cosmonauts and astronauts. Meet Jerrie Cobb, who could only dream of flying above the atmosphere; Valentina Tereshkova and Sally Ride, some of the first women to fly in space; Canadian astronauts Roberta Bondar and Julie Payette; and read about the inspiring yet heartbreaking story of Columbia crew member Kalpana Chawla.

Read about exciting missions, fun space facts, and the challenges faced by women, past and present, who dream of truly reaching the stars.

Photographs and sidebars containing facts and quotes are included.

This book is intended for ages 9 – 13.
