Little People, Big Dreams: Mae Jemison

Little People, Big Dreams: Mae Jemison


Discover the life of Mae Jemison, scientist, astronaut and the first ever black woman in space. When Mae Jemison was a little girl, she dreamed of blasting off into space on a rocket ship. She was so excited as she watched the Apollo Moon landings, but she wondered... why were none of the astronauts women?


Mae loved science and was so bright that she started college at just 16, and was training to be a doctor by the age of 20. She joined the Peace Corps, using her medical knowledge to help people in countries all around the world. Upon returning to the United States, she was accepted into NASA's astronaut program.

After hard work and training, in 1992 Mae became the first Black woman to travel into space!
