Caption

Astronaut candidate Kathryn D. Sullivan (born 1951). Sullivan set an unofficial sustained American aviation altitude record for women on July 1, 1979, in a NASA WB-57F reconnaissance aircraft. Flights in the WB-57F were training in preparation for her assignments on the Space Shuttle. Sullivan, an American geologist and crew member on three Space Shuttle missions, was the first woman to perform extravehicular activity (EVA) during Space Shuttle Challenger mission STS-41-G on October 11, 1984.
