Eileen Collins

Eileen Collins became the first woman to command a space shuttle mission. Her love of science came early, in the halls of her hometown library. After receiving her bachelors in mathematics and economics, she joined an Air Force pilot training program. Out of a class of 320, she was one of only four women chosen. http://goo.gl/HDKLS1
