MN12: Dr. Roberta Bondar (Canadian Hero 3)

I worked very hard to find good numbers on Dr. Roberta Bondar. It was a major victory when I finally did! I recommend following this with Chris Hadfield (MN13).

*the km number is actually listed as million km (5,470 million km instead of 5,470,000,000). I puzzled over the unit and thought it might be clearer to list the number in plain kilometres. I kept the million miles number simply for discussion and comparison. You can change these numbers any way you wish.
