epp: Jeanette Epps To Become NASA's First African-American Space Station Crew Member blogged by: @avah taylor @balleralert Jeanette Epps To Become NASA's First African-American Space Station Crew Member - blogged by @avah_taylor - ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ NASA astronaut JeanetteEpps is set to make history as the first Black crew member of an International Space Station (ISS) expedition. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The agency announced that Epps will become the first African-American space station crew member when she launches on her first spaceflight in May 2018. She will join veteran astronaut Andrew Feustel as a flight engineer on Expedition 56 aboard the ISS and also remain on board for Expedition 57, according to the press release. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Each space station crew brings something different to the table, and Drew and Jeanette both have a lot to offer,” Chris Cassidy, chief of the Astronaut Office at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston said in a statement. “The space station will benefit from having them on board.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Epps had spent seven years working as a CIA technical intelligence officer before being selected as an astronaut by NASA in 2009. Prior to that, she earned a bachelor's degree in physics from LeMoyne College in her hometown of Syracuse, New York, followed by a master's of science (in 1994) and doctorate (in 2000) in aerospace engineering from the University of Maryland. blackgirlmagic blackgirlsrock
