Event Description

Col. Eileen Collins
Leadership Lessons from Apollo to Discovery

Astronaut and shuttle commander Col. Eileen Collins is a pioneer of aviation. After being the second woman to graduate from the Air Force Test Pilot School in 1990, she was selected for NASA’s astronaut program. On her inaugural shuttle mission in February 1995, she became the first woman to pilot a space shuttle. In July 1999, Collins achieved more milestones by becoming the first woman to command a shuttle mission and the first astronaut to pilot a 360-degree pitch maneuver. She commanded Space Shuttle Discovery’s historic “Return to Flight” mission in July 2005, before retiring. Collins made four shuttle missions in her NASA career, logging more than 872 hours in space.
