March 8 of each year is celebrated around the globe as International Women’s Day. At NASA, women – be they scientists, pilots, astronauts or subject matter experts – help the agency fulfill its mission. Joan Higginbotham is one of those women.

She was selected as an astronaut candidate in 1996. She began her career at NASA in 1987 as an electrical engineer at the Kennedy Space Center. In November 2007, Higginbotham retired from NASA.

In this image from 2003, Higginbotham took a break from training for the STS-116 mission and is shown in front of a NASA T-38 trainer.

每年的3月8日是世界各地庆祝国际妇女节。 在NASA,女性(无论是科学家,飞行员,宇航员还是主题专家)都可以帮助该机构完成任务。琼·希金波坦就是其中之一。

1996年,她被选为宇航员候选人。1987年,她在NASA开始了自己的职业生涯,在肯尼迪航天中心担任电气工程师。2007年11月,希金波坦从NASA退休。

在这张2003年的照片中,希金波坦在STS-116任务的训练中休息了一下,并出现在NASA的T-38教练机前。
