Astronaut Anna Fisher, first mom in space, retires from NASA after 39 years
[i]The last member of NASA's first group of space shuttle astronauts to still work for the agency has retired after more than three decades of service.
Anna Lee Fisher, who was recruited in 1978 as one of the United States' first six women astronauts and who became the first mother to fly into space, left NASA on Friday (April 28), the space agency announced in a press release.
"We appreciate all of the years that Anna has dedicated to our space program," said Chris Cassidy, chief of NASA's Astronaut Office at the Johnson Space Center in Houston. "Anna, and that first class of astronauts to include women, set the stage for decades of female astronauts after them."[/i]
