Jeanette Epps Launches Into Space…And History

The first African-American astronaut will join the crew of the International Space Station next year, and it’s a woman!

Forty-six-year-old Jeanette Epps will launch in May 2018 to be a flight engineer on Expedition 56, and will remain on board the ISS for Expedition 57.

Epps posted on her Twitter account:

“In order to succeed you have to do well and perform well. Don’t do less and accept less.  Put in the time and complete the task. You want to be a contributing member to every group that you are a part of.”
