Dunbar, the first female astronaut from Washington, and president and CEO of The Museum of Flight in Seattle, is being immortalized by a state oral-history project. ‘It is a real treat for Washingtonians and people around the globe to learn more about the Bonnie Dunbar story,’ Reed said in a news release. ‘She literally saw that the sky was the limit, and through an excellent work ethic, a top-notch education and family support, she excelled in a male-dominated field and flew five missions in space.’
