Summary
"A picture book biography of Nancy Grace Roman, the astronomer who overcame obstacles such as weakening eyesight and teachers who did not believe astronomy was an appropriate career for a woman to lead the NASA team to build the Hubble Space Telescope. This is the empowering story of a female scientist's triumphs at a time when society discouraged women from pursuing scientific careers. It is also the story of an important milestone in the field of astronomy. But more than anything, it is a reminder to all of us: do what you love - and keep looking up"--
