2015 E. James Holland Symposium on American Values - Space Exploration and American Values

Events and speakers for the annual E. James Holland symposium

Eileen Collins, NASA's First Woman Commander

"When I was a child, I dreamed about space - I admired pilots, astronauts, and I've admired explorers of all kinds. It was only a dream that I would someday be one of them. It is my hope that all children "boys and girls" will see this mission and be inspired to reach for their dreams, because dreams do come true!" (Upon being named the first female shuttle commander.)
