Beth Moses is the first woman to fly to space on a commercial vehicle, earning her commercial astronaut wings during her 55.85-mile flight into the beginning of space, but Beth is so much more than just a passenger. The chief astronaut instructor at Virgin Galactic, the first and only name in space tourism, is the person in charge of getting normal people into the stratosphere, preparing them for the zero-G flight experience. Beth took the historic flight to know how to better prep her students to take the plunge in the future, but it also made her the 571st human to travel into space. An unimportant addendum, Beth probably also has the best hair of anyone to ever enter space.
