Kathryn Sullivan is the first American woman to walk in space. Trained as a scientist - with a Ph.D. in geology and oceanography - she helped launch the Hubble Space Telescope while on the crew of the Discovery space shuttle.

Jumping off from her rocket-fueled book, Handprints on Hubble, Kathryn Sullivan is here to tell the epic tale of the Hubble, her own pioneering space missions, and how the world's most iconic telescope has revolutionized our understanding of the Universe.

Kathryn Sullivan is an astronaut who has spent over 500 hours in space and is a veteran of three NASA shuttle missions. From 2014 to 2017, she served as the Administrator of the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), overseeing a network of satellites, ships, and airplanes that monitor Earth's oceans and atmosphere. In June 2020, she became the first woman to reach the Challenger Deep, seven miles below the sea’s surface and the deepest part of the ocean. Handprints on Hubble is her first book.
