Notes

Description
"A picture book biography of Nancy Grace Roman, the astronomer who overcame obstacles such as weakening eyesight and teachers who did not believe astronomy was an appropriate career for a woman to lead the NASA team to build the Hubble Space Telescope. This is the empowering story of a female scientist's triumphs at a time when society discouraged women from pursuing scientific careers. It is also the story of an important milestone in the field of astronomy. But more than anything, it is a reminder to all of us: do what you love - and keep looking up"--,Provided by publisher.
Target Audience
Ages 4-8,Albert Whitman & Company.
