News in Review Roberta Bondar: Stellar Inspiration

​Twenty five years ago, Roberta Bondar blasted into history as the first Canadian woman in space. A research scientist in neurology, she used her education in the first International Microgravity Laboratory Mission on board Space Shuttle Discovery. Now, a quarter of a century later, she’s still flying high, reaching out to a younger generation to spark their curiosity in all things science and space. And she’s pursuing her passion of extreme landscape photography. The CBC’s Reg Sherren caught up with this busy lady to take a look back on her legacy.
