When Mae Jemison was a little girl, all astronauts were white men. But Mae, an African-American, was determined to join their ranks--and she did.
Fittingly, her first flight was aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour. THE NEW EXPLORERS™ follows Ms. Jemison as she prepares for her historic flight, and chronicles how she got there. It is a trail that took her through degrees in chemical engineering, African-American studies and medical school; through stints in the Peace Corps and opening her own practice, and finally winning acceptance into NASA's astronaut program. Footage from her mission shows her conducting experiments that will help bring us closer to life in space, and witness her triumphant reception at a Chicago school, where she is welcomed as a hero after her return to earth.
ENDEAVOR is an inspiring story of dreams and determination.
