Astronaut NICOLE STOTT: What I learned while living in Space.

Nicole is an American engineer and a retired NASA astronaut with two spaceflights and 104 days as a

crewmember on both the International Space Station (ISS) and the Space Shuttle.

She was the 10th woman to ever perform a spacewalk.

Nicole was also the first person to live tweet from space, and the first person to paint with watercolor in space.

After her retirement from NASA, she co-founded the Space for Art Foundation, where children create art as a planetary community from hospitals, refugee centers, orphanages and schools from around the world.

Nicole holds a MS degree in Engineering Management, and started her career performing structural analyses of advanced jet engine component designs. She is also an instrument-rated private pilot, and a NASA aquanaut, who once spent 18 days living and working on the Aquarius Underwater Habitat.

Her book, “Back to Earth” is available everywhere books are sold, and it’s a fantastic read!
