Cady Coleman, UMass Amherst 1991, whose journey to space began at a UMass laboratory when the then-graduate student realized where her love of science and thirst for exploration was leading her. Coleman says she developed a skill at UMass that she has proved critical to the success of her Shuttle and International Space Station missions. She notes: "Being an astronaut means that I lead a lifetime of learning. You have to be good at trying to figure out how to learn new things. At the University of Massachusetts, I learned how to learn."
