The Whelen Lecture and Women in Science Speaker Series

The Whelen Lecture and Women in Science Speaker Series presents,

Dr. Roberta Bondar, Canada's first female astronaut and world's first neurologist in space

Sustaining the Future of Our Planet and Ourselves

The earth is our home – and the only one that most of us will ever know. Historians have remarked that sometimes we need to leave our familiar surroundings to gain context. To date, the only way to do that is to travel to space. Dr. Bondar orbited our planet 129 times over 8 days, 1 hour, 14 minutes, 44 seconds as a payload specialist on the Space Shuttle Discovery in January 1992. She has spent the last 27 years translating her unique experiences as an astronaut, neuroscientist, medical researcher, and photographer to deepen our understanding of life and our natural environment. Dr. Bondar will present her personal take on where we find ourselves as inhabitants of planet earth and some of the challenges we face in sustaining our future.
