Born in 1945, in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Roberta Lynn Bondar has always had an interest in science and space. She earned a B.Sc., M.Sc., and Ph.D. before obtaining her M.D. from McMaster University in 1977. Dr. Bondar realized her dream in 1992, when she was the first Canadian woman to travel in space. Bondar, a neurologist by training, was one of the six original astronauts selected. On the space shuttle Discovery, Bondar's role was to study how the human body reacted to weightlessness and the growth of plants without gravity.
