Questions for Dr. Roberta Bondar

by Paul Jay, CBC News Online

Monday, January 22, is the 15th anniversary of Roberta Bondar's flight aboard the space shuttle Discovery. I had a chance to speak to Dr. Bondar on Monday about her journey and her thoughts on the state of space exploration, and I'll post a link to that story soon.

But we wanted to give you an opportunity to have Dr. Bondar answer one of your questions. Let us know what you'd like to ask her here and stay tuned for her responses.
