I nominate Guy Bluford Jr. to the Trailblazer Honor Roll. It was interesting to learn that he was the first African American man to become an astronaut working for NASA. He was assigned the remote Manipulator system (RMS). His first mission was STS-8, which was launched from Kennedy Space Center in Florida, on August 30, 1983.
