Jasmine Bridges - MS'10 Mechanical Engineering

Bridges, of Tacoma, Wash., recently graduated with a Masters degree in Mechanical Engineering. She was inspired to become an astronaut by the movie industry and by one of the worst disasters in the history of the U.S. space program. "At six years old, despite the unfortunate 1986 Challenger explosion, I became fascinated with space and astronomy," says Bridges.
