Dr. Roberta Bondar, first Canadian woman to go to space, to mark 30th anniversary of groundbreaking work
Thirty years after becoming the first Canadian woman and the world’s first neurologist in space, Dr. Roberta Bondar joined CTV News Chief Anchor and Senior Editor Lisa LaFlamme for a one-on-one interview.
While travelling on orbit, Bondar says the sight and experience of Earth as a planet below her sparked her desire to explore more of its surface.
She discussed a range of topics from the medical benefits of how bodies working in space and recovering after orbit spark new discoveries and benefits to treating humans on Earth. Working on the moon. Space tourism. Diversity in crew selection. Learning as a lifetime activity with the Sciences developing certain skill sets and the Arts giving us ways to create with them and to express ourselves.
