Women in Space: A Timeline

As you may know, Space Shuttle Discovery is commanded by a woman–Eileen M. Collins. She is one of 40 women to have ever made the journey into space. NPR has a great timeline of women in space; so check out the women who reached for the stars. (Cliché enough for you? Yeah, I was holding that one in for a while.)
