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. Bondar told how, while travelling on orbit, the sight and experience of Earth as a planet below her sparked her desire to pay more attention to what was on its surface. LaFlamme led her into reflections on how astronauts working in space and recovering after flight lead to new discoveries and benefits to helping humans on Earth.
She continued over a range of topics from space tourism to diversity in crew selection to how Learning is a lifetime activity with the Sciences developing certain skill sets and the Arts giving us ways to create with them and to express ourselves.
