Nichelle Nichols Helped NASA Break Boundaries on Earth and in Space

 Hey, Space Placers!!!

Actor Nichelle Nichols sits in the Capsule Communications area of the Mission Control Center at NASA's Johnson Space Center in 1977 during filming of a promotional movie to aid in recruiting women and people of color to apply to be astronauts.

LT Nyota Uhura , U.S.S. Enterprise Communications Officer on the original Star Trek was brilliantly portrayed by the beautiful and wonderful Nichelle Nichols. She passed recently and the Internet, Media and NASA highlighted her many contributions to humanity.

She was a multi-faceted game changer and pioneer and helped NASA to achieve much in terms of recruitment of women and minorities.

She was a wonderful human being and she will be missed.
