Nicole Stott is a NASA astro­naut, aqua­naut, artist, mom, and author of Back to Earth What Life In Space Taught Me About Our Home Planet – And Our Mission To Protect It.

Nicole Stott cre­ative­ly com­bines the awe and won­der of her space­flight expe­ri­ence with her art­work to inspire everyone’s appre­ci­a­tion of our role as crew­mates here on Spaceship Earth. 

Nicole is a vet­er­an NASA Astronaut with two space­flights and 104 days liv­ing and work­ing in space as a crewmem­ber on both the International Space Station and the Space Shuttle. Personal high­lights of her time in space include per­form­ing a space­walk (10th woman to do so), fly­ing the robot­ic arm to cap­ture the first Japanese car­go ship, work­ing with her inter­na­tion­al crew in sup­port of the mul­ti-dis­ci­pli­nary sci­ence onboard the orbit­ing lab­o­ra­to­ry, paint­ing a water­col­or in space (now on dis­play at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum), and of course the life-chang­ing view of our home planet.

Nicole is also a NASA Aquanaut. In prepa­ra­tion for space­flight, she was a crewmem­ber on an 18-day sat­u­ra­tion dive mis­sion at the Aquarius under­sea laboratory.

Nicole believes that the inter­na­tion­al mod­el of peace­ful and suc­cess­ful coop­er­a­tion we have expe­ri­enced in the extreme envi­ron­ments of space and sea holds the key to the same kind of peace­ful and suc­cess­ful coop­er­a­tion for all of human­i­ty here on Earth. 

On her post-NASA mis­sion, she is a co-founder of the Space for Art Foundation — unit­ing a plan­e­tary com­mu­ni­ty of chil­dren through the awe and won­der of space explo­ration and the heal­ing pow­er of art.
