Unbelievably, Anna Lee Fisher was the first mother to go up to space. How would you feel if you followed this significant pioneer’s dream? This might mean you’ll see the shiny,beautiful stellar (stellar is another word for star). Well, if you were selected by NASA to be an astronaut, what would you do first? Read on to find out about this extraordinary pioneer’s life.
In a small town in New York there was a sound like a baby was crying: It was Anna! Little did his parents know (Riley Fisher Tingles) their kid might ever be a pioneer. As Anna grew up, she went to a San Pedro school. The following year she got fascinated by medical issues. In her final years she graduated from the San Pedro school in 1967.
Soon afterwards, she rested for a while then changed her school. She went to a medical school (UCLA)- they wanted to give Anna a Masters of Science in Chemistry in 1987. When she received this, she worked in a hospital : A one year internship at Harbor General Hospital in Torrance (HGH)
The following year ,she was married to a young fellow called William Bill Fisher. Subsequently, she gave birth to a child called Kristen Fisher. Several months later, she changed her mind about being an astronaut. So she began to train: She had to train for a whole year. It was extremely dangerous and tiring. But Anna nailed it! It was 1978, NASA had decided. Whether to let Anna be selected or not. But you know what? NASA selected her to be an astronaut! Few weeks later, Anna had been given a mission… As she got onto the rocket, the countdown started 3...2...1...0! She blasted off to outer space. She said to herself, “ When the rockets go off you may not know where you’re going but you know you're going somewhere.” She just had recognized she was in space! This is how she was famous: she was the first mother up to space.
