Space Things & Aerial Strings

Taking a trip down memory lane is the perfect remedy when you're feeling low. It's the pick-me-up you need.



Guess the historical figure

Who am I?

You might know me as the namesake for a fan-favorite Pixar character, but 55 years ago today I was also the first person to ever take a selfie in space. A few years later, I'd follow the most famous 'small step' with one of my own.

"This photo was taken at my older brother David’s wedding in early 1975 and is of my beautiful mother Mavis and father Bob Balfour. Mum, unfortunately, died later that year of breast cancer so this is one of the last good photos of her. I was a bridesmaid and can be seen in the background. I was 15 years old. I’m now 62."
