NASA celebrates the life and career of Nichelle Nichols, famous for her role of Lieutenant Uhura on Star Trek, as she retires from public life.
Not only did Nichols portray a character that was an incredible role model, but in 1977, she also partnered with NASA to recruit minority and female personnel for the space agency’s shuttle program.
Nichols symbolized to so many what was possible and inspired young minds to pursue science, technology, engineering, and mathematics careers.
