Biographical / Historical:
Dr. Kathryn D. Sullivan (b. 1951) has had a long career as a distinguished scientist, astronaut, and oceanographer. She was one of the first six women selected into the NASA astronaut corps in 1978 and was the first American female astronaut to walk in space (October 11, 1984.) During her 15-year NASA career, Dr. Sullivan flew on three space shuttle missions, notably the one that deployed the Hubble Space Telescope. In 1993, Dr. Sullivan left NASA to accept the presidential appointment to the post of Chief Scientist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). From 1996 - 2006, Dr. Sullivan served as President and CEO of the hands-on science center, Central Ohio Science Institute (COSI) in Columbus, Ohio. Dr. Sullivan then served as the Inaugural Director of the Battelle Center for Mathematics and Science Education Policy in the John Glenn School of Public Affairs at the Ohio State University. Dr. Sullivan, a specialist in deep-sea geology, finished her career back at NOAA as the Under Secretary of Commerce for Oceans and Atmosphere, where she oversaw a broad portfolio of research and technology programs in such diverse areas as fisheries biology, climate and global change, satellite instrumentation and marine biodiversity. Dr. Sullivan was the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum's 2017 Charles A. Lindbergh Chair of Aerospace History; her topic was the development of satellite service of the Hubble Telescope. Dr. Sullivan was also an oceanography officer with the United States Navy Reserve (1988-2006), retiring with the rank of captain.
