Many of us dream about one day traveling to space. But unless you're willing to dedicate a lifetime to the rigors of becoming a NASA astronaut, how can you ever hope to get there?

Leading the program is astronaut Mae Jemison, who famously became the first black woman to travel in space when she boarded the Space Shuttle Endeavour in 1992.
