"The 53-year-old Montrealer, who speaks six languages..."
"Payette, who is also an accomplished athlete, pianist and choral singer..."
"A computer engineer with a commercial pilot licence..."
"She participated in two space flights to the International Space Station and served as the CSA's chief astronaut between 2000 and 2007."
"Payette is active on a number of causes and has served as a board member for Drug Free Kids Canada as well as being listed as a National Champion of the Trans Canada Trail."

Bloody over-achievers making the rest of us look bad...


Congratulations, Ms. Payette!
