Flight Paths to Success: Career Insights from Women Leaders in Aerospace

Flight Paths to Success profiles the personal journeys of 33 women who have been, and continue to be, successful in aviation, space, and academia. Each woman was asked to select one question of several questions in five categories: personal career insight, work-life balance, mentorship/sponsorship, avoiding a career stall, and powering through challenging situations. Each woman shared her unique experiences about work-life integration, resilience, career changes, relocation, continuing education, and career advancement. While reading their stories, we saw that there were many flight paths to success and each woman navigated her own way by charting her own course and committing to it. Their stories were published as they wrote them-in their own words.

Standard Practice for Manpower and Personnel

This Standard covers Manpower and Personnel (M&P) processes throughout planning, design, development, test, production, use, and disposal of a system. Depending on contract phase and/or complexity of the program, tailoring can be applied. The scope of this standard includes Prime and Sub-contractor M&P activities; it does not include Government M&P activities. The primary goals of a contractor M&P program typically include: Ensuring that the system design complies with the latest customer manpower estimates (numbers and mix of personnel, plus availability) and that discrepancies are reported to management and the customer. Ensuring that the system design is regularly compared to the latest customer Personnel estimates (capabilities and limitations) and that discrepancies are reported to management and the customer.

Mentoring SFRM: A New Approach to International Space Station Flight Controller Training

The Mission Operations Directorate (MOD) of the Johnson Space Center is responsible for providing continuous operations support for the International Space Station (ISS). Operations support requires flight controllers who are skilled in team performance as well as the technical operations of the ISS. ISS flight controller certification has evolved to include a balanced focus on the development of team performance and technical expertise. The latest challenge the ISS team faces is how to certify an ISS flight controller to the required level of effectiveness in one year. Space Flight Resource Management (SFRM) training, a NASA adapted variant of Crew Resource Management (CRM), is expanding the role of senior flight controllers as mentors to help meet that challenge. This paper explains our mentoring approach and discusses its effectiveness and future applicability in promoting SFRM/CRM skills.

South Texas Engineering, Math, and Science (STEMS) Space Day Program: A Nontraditional Partnership Based on Mentoring

This paper describes a unique partnership between NASA and students residing in the Texas Rio Grande Valley. The program is based on annual activities that provide a connection between NASA and border communities via mentoring. The approach utilizes older students and teachers as mentoring ambassadors who are trained at NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston. The mentors are trained in specific space themes for each year's main event and return to South Texas to serve as mentors and role models for younger students. The main event occurs at UT Brownsville, in which over 600 5th and 8th graders from five counties attend. The event utilizes the trained ambassadors to offer more than 20 hands-on activities that highlight a theme related to NASA's current focus and missions. The activities demonstrate how math, science, and engineering relate to exploring and understanding the universe and solving problems on earth.

Biological Experiments in Space as the Object of the Educational Program in Ukraine

For the purpose of organizing and carrying out extracurricular training, and identifying, mentoring and supporting gifted students, the Ukrainian Junior Academy of Sciences (UJAS) was created. Under its auspices, high school students from the USA and the Ukraine, together with astronauts aboard Space Shuttle Columbia, conducted plant science experiments (Collaborative Ukrainian Experiment or CUE) during NASA's STS-87 mission. While the students constructed simulated flight hardware and studied the growth, pollination and fertilization of Brassica rapa plants in their classrooms, the same plant investigation took place in the microgravity environment aboard the Space Shuttle. During the period when the Brassica experiments were being conducted, the International Water Institute (IWI) Program was developed by Brevard Community College in collaboration with the UJAS. The program has expanded and today the IWI program is one of the most productive in Ukraine.
