Jerrie Cobb by Women FlyIn the infancy of the space age, Jerrie Cobb was chosen to undergo the Mercury astronaut selection tests. After weeks of grueling tests, she passed all three phases and qualified as America's first woman astronaut at age 29. In a sudden and devastating blow, Jerrie was denied the opportunity to fly in space due to new requirements of military jet test pilot experience initiated by NASA. For over 35 years, Jerrie has found great joy flying everyday over the Amazon rain forest, bringing hope, seeds and help to the people who live there. Jerrie has waited 40 years for a chance to fly in space.
