The Sky Is No Limit For Barbara Morgan

November 28, 1951 Astronaut and teacher Barbara Morgan was born. Morgan was selected as the backup candidate in NASA’s Teachers In Space program and trained with Christa McAullife. After the Challenger disaster Morgan returned to Idaho to teach second and third grade, but in 1988 NASA called on her to become a full time astronaut. In 2007 she flew into space as a member of the STS-118 crew. Morgan’s words “Reach for your dreams … the sky is no limit.” are etched into the wall of the Walt Disney World Mission: Space exhibit.
