First Canadian Women to Visit Space About Roberta Roberta's Accomplishments Roberta Bondar is the first Canadian women and only the second Canadian who visited space when she flew on space shuttle Discovery on Mission STS-42 on January 22 1992. She was selected with other five Canadians to begin training to be an astronaut in 1984. Roberta was born on December4, 1945 in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, where she attended school. She earned a doctorate's degree in neurobiology and became a medical doctor as well.

After training to become an astronaut, she spent eight days in space. Bondar is now researching about the physiological change that occurs to humans on space and how it applies to life on earth. It is hoped that it can discover more effective treatments to diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, Parkinson's Disease and Shy Drager's Syndrome.
