Julie Payette, born in Montreal, flew on two shuttle missions. Her second flight, on Endeavour from July 15 to 31, 2009, marked the last time a Canadian astronaut would ride on a shuttle. She believes the shuttle's legacy will be "fundamentally tied" to the construction of the International Space Station - a rare example of many countries working together "to advance knowledge for all human beings."

In this video, Ms. Payette says the construction of the space station is a good model of international co-operation and "we should apply it in more places."
