Stephanie Wilson—The Bible in Space

In 1992, Dr. Mae Jamison became the first African American woman traveling in space. Just four years later, Stephanie Wilson became number two, considered a veteran with more than 42 days in space.

The Harvard grad’s contributions to the space program reads like a “who’s who” of space exploration and technology development--one that continues today in her role as support to NASA’s International Space Station Operations branch.

When asked in a 2009 interview about what she takes along while traveling in space, Stephanie said she “always packs a small Bible.”

The Bible has been in space with other astronauts, including most famously with Apollo 14 Astronaut Edgar Mitchell.

This Lunar Bible contains all 700,000+ words of the King James Bible on microfiche!
