Anatomy Is Not Destiny: Meet Mae Jemison 🚀

Anatomy Is Not Destiny: Meet Mae Jemison 🚀

Charlotte Prichard, 12 September 2018

On this day in 1992, astronaut Mae Jemison, aboard the Endeavour on mission STS47 became the first woman of colour to travel into space. Whilst in orbit, science mission specialist Jemison conducted experiments into weightlessness and motion sickness on both herself and the crew and investigated whether microgravity produced better semiconductor crystals for computer chips. After over 190 hours in space, Jemison returned to Earth and the rest, as they say, is history!

Today, we're celebrating her endeavors and contribution to history with our charity partner, Fawcett Society: offering you 10% off the Anatomy Is Not Destiny Necklace online and in-store with code: WHATAJEM  

  

“Never be limited by other people's limited imaginations.” 🚀  - Dr. Mae Jemison
