How amazing would it be to take a tour of a NASA facility lead by Nichelle Nichols?!
Since portraying Lt. Uhura in the original ‘Star Trek,’ Nichols has been involved in many NASA programs - especially those directed toward science education. For instance, at AbSciCon in 2012, she hosted the first annual Famelab Astrobiology competition for the NASA Astrobiology Program.
