About the Author

Abigail "Astronaut Abby" Harrison (astronautabby.com) is an aspiring astronaut and the co-founder of the international nonprofit organization The Mars Generation. A rising star in her field, she holds a degree in biology from Wellesley College, has interned at a NASA-funded astrobiology lab, and currently works as a research scientist at the Jackson Lab at Harvard Medical School, and she has been featured in TIME, Forbes, Seventeen, Marie Claire, Glamour, Teen Vogue, the BBC, USA Today, CNN, and more. Abby believes that no one is ever too young to pursue their dreams--she herself is living proof of that notion--and she's determined to help as many young people as possible start reaching for their very own stars. All proceeds earned by Abby from the sale of this book will be donated to The Mars Generation, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Abbyis from Minneapolis.
