Nicole Marie Passonno Stott known as the ‘Artistic Astronaut’, has dedicated her life to sharing the beauty of space and ocean. Stott received her B.S. degree from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and an M.S. degree in Engineering Management from the University of Central Florida. She joined NASA as Operations Engineer in the Orbiter Processing Facility at Kennedy Space Center. During her tenure in Kenney Space Centre, she had completed two spaceflights, first in 2009 where she performed a spacewalk for six hours and thirty-nine minutes and the second spaceflight in 2011 when she was a crew member of the space shuttle, STS-133. She was one of the crew members on the NEEMO 9 mission where she worked for 18 days on the Aquarius undersea research habitat. Stott participated in the first NASA Tweetup from the station. This involved the first live Twitter connection for the astronauts. After 27 years with the space agency, Stott is now a full-time artist and advocate for science, technology, engineering, math and art (STEAM) education.
