BLACK COLLEGIAN Profiles NASA Astronaut Joan Higginbotham

Of interest at our sister publication, THE BLACK COLLEGIAN Online, new features have been from the paper magazine's first semester edition, including its engaging cover interview with NASA Astronaut Joan Higginbotham, discussing her career path en route to becoming only the third African American woman astronaut.

The interview is part of the edition's theme section on Careers in Science, Engineering & Technology.

Incidentally, for flight buffs, the upcoming edition will include a Black History Month section feature commemorating Vernice Armour – The First African-American Woman Combat Pilot.
