‘Honoring Our STEM Legend’

 The late Claudia Alexander, a member of the Pasadena-Altadena (CA) Chapter, was honored by colleagues from the European Space Agency’s Rosetta Mission, who named a comet for her. Alexander died in July, 2015 at the age of 56, and was with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. One part of the comet was renamed “Alexander Gate.” She was instrumental in providing STEM mentorship to  young women in the chapter’s Links-Up for Success Mentoring program.
