In this week's episode of the Jackson Hole Connection, Stephan visits with Abby Harrison, better known as Astronaut Abby. Abby is a Wellesley graduate, aspiring astronaut and the founder of the non-profit The Mars Generation. Abby's goal is to be the first person to walk on Mars. She is currently pursuing her goal in Jackson by working with the non-profit Wyoming Stargazing. In this episode, Stephan and Abby talk about space, pursuing your dreams, astronaut training, The Mars Generation and STEAM education. Unfortunately, this episode was cut a few minutes short due to a file error that fittingly made Abby and Stephan sound like the stereotypical martian.
