Great Asian Americans - Ellison Onizuka

Description

This educational poster of astronaut Ellison Onizuka features a striking illustration of him, as well as a concise biography.

Ellison Onizuka was born in Hawaii, the grandson of Japanese immigrants. As a child, he was especially good at science and math, so it was no surprise that he became an engineer. In the 1970s, he became one of 220 astronauts for NASA's new shuttle program. In 1985, he made it into orbit aboard the shuttle Discovery, becoming the first Asian-American in space. Sadly he was one of the seven astronauts aboard the Challenger when it exploded and killed everyone on board. He was not yet 40 years old, but he had accomplished so much in his lifetime.

This poster is a great way to introduce students to this truly great American.
