Remember Mae Jemison?

Mae Jemison was a BIG. DEAL. when I was in grade school. I feel like she must have gotten equal billing with Sally Ride in the early/mid 90s, but these days it seems like everyone's forgotten her. My school had a book talking about experiments she did with plants or something like that.

(Aside: Mae Jemison is roughly the same age as my parents, and DAMN did she age well.)
