American teacher and U.S. astronaut who was eighth in the selection process, after Christa McAuliffe, to be a crew member of the fated Challenger Shuttle. She began her career in 1975, teaching in McCall-Donnely Elementary school.
The daughter of a doctor, she has been a space enthusiast since childhood. She married adventurer and novelist Clay Morgan.
Twelve years after watching in horror as the shuttle Columbia exploded, her chance finally came. She was getting ready to teach her third-graders in McCall, Idaho, when NASA called in early 1998. She went into active training to become a full astronaut.
