Ellen Ochoa

Dr. Ellen Ochoa is an engineer, former astronaut, retired Director of Johnson Space Center, and classical flutist. She was the first Hispanic woman to go to space in 1993 and even brought her flute along. You can find video and photos of Ellen playing her Haynes flute aboard the near weightless environment of the shuttle Discovery. Through her missions and numerous discoveries, Ellen has continued to make time for music in her life and it was an honor to sit down with her and hear about the flute from a different point of view.
