Eileen Collins, NASA's first female space shuttle pilot, told about 1,200 Houston girls Saturday that as a youngster she almost always had a book in her hands and felt a calling from the skies.
"I read a lot, about horses, chemistry, microscopes," Collins, 50, told preteens attending the Sally Ride Science Festival at Rice University. "And I used to watch planes. I'd look up and say, 'Gee, I wonder what it's like up there.' I wanted to be an astronaut."
Girls from schools across the area scattered about, learning about rocket propulsion, aerospace engineering, biomedical sciences, quantum physics, logistics, atmospheric chemistry, nanotechnology, forensics and more.
