Inspired by Apollo and science fiction, Marianne Dyson was the first woman in her family to graduate from college--earning a degree in physics cum laude, and became one of the first ten women flight controllers for NASA. After working the first 5 space shuttle flights, she left NASA to raise her children. She now shares her passion for space through writing and speaking. She has published five nonfiction books and dozens of stories and articles related to space. Concerned about science literacy, she reviews children’s books for her Web site and as a volunteer for the National Space Society. She is the publications coordinator for the Rotary National Award for Space Achievement Foundation.
