Star Trek: The Power of a Vision by Candy Torres of the USS ZAVALA
Star Trek instigated a lot of serious and fun adventures throughout my life. It started in 1966 when I was 13 years old. I grew up watching science-fiction and Star Trek created a positive vision of the future I wanted to work towards. As a teenager I was inspired to read about antimatter and phasers as well as other science and technologies. I dreamed about working in the space industry. When I attended college, I made up my own space science major. I also met other college students who were big Trek fans. Our parties were Trek-themed, we went to conventions in costume, and we followed the actors to lectures and plays. My presentation will be a journey of Star Trek stories for the audience to understand and enjoy the power of vision.
A Star Trek Reality by Candy Torres of the USS ZAVALA
I loved travel and adventure so Star Trek’s exciting future in a starship fed my imagination. Dreams need to be nurtured to become reality. I sought out opportunities to be ready to work in the growing space industry. Eventually, I participated in the age of exploration on Princeton University’s historic Orbiting Astronomical Satellite (OAO-3C) satellite project and, later, at NASA-Johnson Space Center in the Space Shuttle and International Space Station programs. I have never stopped watching Star Trek because it still feeds my soul. My mission is to inspire people to encourage students to pursue careers in STEM.Stay Connected
