An Indian born in Canada, 32-year-old Dr. Shawna will follow the footsteps of Kalpana Chawla and Sunita Williams, as she is gearing up for two space missions in 2018. Out of a talent pool of 3200 dexterous brains, Shawna was one of the two finalists that made it for this mission.shawna-pandya-third-indian-woman-in-space2-1486646629 - Copy
