"Uber on his days off and on weekends, just to make extra cash though he has his limits. So I just don't like to drive after 10 o'clock on the weekends because that's when all the drug people come out. It doesn't help that gas prices are so high. Uber offers a bonus to help with those gas prices, but it's only 50 cents a ride. Santos says that is insulting. Just keep your 50 cents. I don't even want it. It's kind of a joke for you to even say that. 'cause it doesn't matter if I'm going 50 miles or one mile. That's all I get is 50 cents. So it's just them trying to say that they're doing something when they're really not. He says it's rough for drivers lately. What he really wants is more rides and a bigger cut of the fair. Or more options to stay afloat in a tough economy. I'm Raquel Maria Dillon NPR news in San Francisco. She is officially mission commander on the SpaceX dragon. She will be expedition 68 flight engineer on the International Space Station, and she may even go to the moon. All of which means she will be going where no native woman has gone before, to space. Nicole Mann is a Marine Corps pilot. She has a master's and engineering from Stanford and is now a NASA astronaut. She is a member of the wailaki of the round valley Indian tribes and joins us now. Welcome to all things considered. Thank you so much. I'm excited to be here with you. Well, if all goes well, by the end of next month, you will be on the International Space Station or at least headed there. What can you tell us about the mission? I am so excited. We have been training a long time for this mission. It's called crew 5 and it will launch from Kennedy Space Center. Myself along with the Josh cassada, koichi wakata, and Anya kinka. And we will travel to the International Space Station for a 6 month mission. And then the completion of that mission will return home on dragon off the coast of Florida. There's a lot that you can do in 6 months. What are you most excited about? So excited. I'm very thank. There's so many things to choose from. Of course, we're going to be doing some amazing science on board. They're planning about 250 experiments for us. There'll be a lot of work on the space station. We are doing some upgrades of the solar arrays. So hopefully we get a chance to do a couple spacewalks while we're up there. I read about something called the bio fabrication lab. What does that exactly? The bio fabrication lab is personally one of my favorites. And I'm very excited to work with that. Essentially it's 3D printing human tissues. We could grow cells here on earth, but because of the effects of gravity in space, we can grow them three dimensionally. We have already produced a partial meniscus of a knee that we're looking at growing heart cells and eventually the concept is that we could grow organs. They're really hoping to have trials in animals by the end of the decade. Well, you are also, of course, making history. You're going to be the first native woman in space. What does that mean to you? It's very exciting. You know, it's so fun, I think, in our lifetime, when you have firsts and I think it's really great to celebrate those and to communicate that, especially to the younger generation, right? These young women, maybe natives, maybe people from different backgrounds that realize that they have these opportunities and potentially these barriers that used to be there are starting to be broken down. And so hopefully that'll inspire that younger generation. And the cool thing is, though, operationally, it doesn't really matter, which is pretty cool, right? We're finally getting to that point in our history. Operationally, it doesn't matter. Personally, I know that you're able to bring a few items from home. When astronaut John herrington became the first native man in space, he brought the chickasaw nation flag. Is there anything special to you that you're planning on bringing with you? I do have some personal mementos jewelry charms that I plan to bring and then I do have this dream catcher that my mother gave me long ago and that's always just a little bit of peace memory. I think of my family back home and that's something that I'll keep with me and my crew quarters while I'm on board space station. When did you know you wanted to be an astronaut? For me, honestly, it wasn't until a little bit later in life. I didn't have it all figured out when I was a kid. You know, I was interested in math and science, but I had never met an astronaut. It didn't really know what they did, and I didn't think that was in the realm of possibility. So it wasn't until I was flying F 18s in the Marine Corps that I started looking at future opportunities and where I wanted my career to go and NASA became something at that point that was a viable and became my dream. Is there something you would like to say to maybe a young person now? Who doesn't believe it's a possibility whether that is a native young woman or anybody who might have those dreams but not think they're realistic? Absolutely. The first thing that I would say is never discount yourself. If you don't go after a dream or a goal and if you don't try, you're never going to make it. You don't pursue that topic in school. Ask for help. Meet people that have done that job to learn more about it. You'll grow so much as a child and to an adult and you're interest will vary quite a bit and so it's exciting to take this opportunity to just
