Exploring the Frontiers of Science and Human Potential
Oregon State University invites you to join a virtual event featuring Dr. Mae C. Jemison – first woman of color in space, national science literacy ambassador, advocate for radical leaps in knowledge, technology, design, and thinking on Earth and beyond. Jemison served six years as a NASA astronaut.
Dr. Mae C. Jemison leads 100 Year Starship (100YSS), a bold, far-reaching nonprofit initiative to assure the capabilities exist for human travel beyond our solar system to another star within the next 100 years. Jemison is building a multi-faceted global community to foster the cultural, scientific, social, and technical commitment, support and financial framework to accomplish the 100YSS vision-An Inclusive, Audacious Journey (that) Transforms Life Here on Earth and Beyond. The 100YSS Way Research Institute seeks to generate the radical leaps that accelerate knowledge, technology, design and thinking not just for space travel, but to enhance life on Earth. Jemison led the team that won the competitive, single awardee seed funding grant in February 2012 from premiere research agency DARPA.
