Past Event:

Wed, Apr 24, 2024 – Special Q&A session post-show with Ellen Ochoa, the first Hispanic Woman in space and former director of the Johnson Space Center.

Silent Sky is a play based on the true story of 19th-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt that focuses on themes of the universe and gender equity. Leavitt, such as Ochoa, held an interest in science that has been a male-dominated field. Seeing such an inspirational individual as Ochoa after the play adds great empowerment to the story being told.

…Ochoa was born and raised in California and she didn’t know she wanted to be an astronaut until she started her higher education at San Diego State. Discovering her passions in STEM, she pursued a major in physics and electrical engineering at Stanford. Later, Ochoa got to do research with NASA, was selected by NASA in January 1990, and became an astronaut in July 1991 making her the first Hispanic woman to go to space. Ochoa was also the first Hispanic woman to become Johnson Space Center’s 11th center director in 2013 as well as the second woman. Dr. Ochoa now lives in Boise and makes STEM children’s books that inspire future generations.”
