Leading Lady NASA Astronaut Dr. Shannon Lucid

  • I’d like to introduce my newest project! Leading Ladies is an ongoing project intended to  commemorate the plethora of amazing women of the past and present.

    Every Leading Lady paper doll template is available in a PDF download to assemble at home. 

    Imagine the possibilities that await! Print these over and over. Share them, and pass them around. Make them or gift them. You choose! Please make sure that you learn about these women and all that they have accomplished! NASA & SPACEX, Astronauts, Cosmonauts, Taikonauts, Spationauts, and Space Travelers all have one thing in common. Their goal is the advancement of the human race through scientific discoveries found in space.

    Keep an eye on the site, as I will be adding batches of new designs! Don’t miss a chance to download an inspiring SHERO! Cheers to these Leading Ladies! May we be them! May we raise them! May we aim for the stars with them!

    I loved playing with paper dolls as a kid. They travel easily and provide a fun craft with an engaging activity allowing imaginative play to fill hours of time with adventures! My hope is that these incredible women will inspire generations of future Leading Ladies. The sky is no longer the limit!

  • NASA Astronaut Dr. Shannon Lucid is a glass ceiling breaker! As the first mother recruited among the first class of NASA’s Astronaut Corps, Dr. Lucid broke many barriers in the field of Science. Her work in the Space Program and through her scientific research and experiments provided unprecedented data in the studies of Earth Science, Biomedical and Physiological Sciences, the processing of items collected in space, as well as research and experimentation of the Earth’s Ozone.

    Dr. Lucid became the First Woman to hold a single-mission Spaceflight endurance record for the most hours orbiting the Earth by a non-Russian while serving as Board Engineer 2. She is recognized as one of the Most Important Women in Science, and she was The First Woman to receive The Congressional Space Medal of Honor.

    Dr. Lucid's long and impressive career with NASA provided a wealth of unprecedented and invaluable data for Scientists to analyze. Enjoy learning about this Leading Lady!
