One of the first women Nasa ever trained as potential astronauts has died in the US aged 89, the Associated Press has reported.
Bernice Steadman was a member of the so-called "Mercury 13" - a grueling training programme in the early 1960's designed to put potential female astronauts through their paces.
The programme was eventually dropped and it would be a further 22 years before an American woman ventured into space.
Mrs Steadman's death was announced by her husband, Robert. She had Alzheimer's disease.
She had a pilot's license before she could drive, it is reported. In her youth she raced aircraft across the US and was a flying instructor.
