A new documentary to share the story of Eileen Collins
(WENY) -- Retired NASA astronaut and Elmira native Eileen Collins will be the subject of a new documentary. Titled "Spacewoman," the documentary will tell the life story of Collins, from her upbringing, to her breaking barriers as the first woman to pilot and command a space shuttle.
The film is based on Collins' memoir called "Through The Glass Ceiling to The Stars." The documentary is directed by Hannah Berryman, who has made several documentaries on inspirational women.
The 90-minute documentary is set to be released in 2025.
