Annie Easley
Annie can absorb and convert others' powers into energy.
Get to know
Annie, a computer whizz-kid, lived with her family in Alabama, USA. When she was 14, high-ranking officials within the government were contracted to hunt her down. Using the computers at her parents home, Annie converted energy from batteries and other household objects to create a force field. The blast of energy that was created exploded her home. Annie survived but was left with the power to self-energise by absorbing and converting others' powers.
The dress Annie is wearing is a replica of the computer circuit board found on a famous photo of Annie Easley (see below).

Cassini revealed the beauty of the planet Saturn with its rings and moons
Cassini was the fourth space probe to visit Saturn and the first to enter its orbit.
Alan Shepard became the first American to travel into space, and in 1971, he walked on the Moon.
Snow and Ice can stop Annie in her tracks. the cold makes it hard for her to convert energy.

Her work contributed to the 1997 flight to Saturn of the Cassini probe. Over her career she also helped to develop and implement computer code that analysed alternative power technologies and supported the Centaur high-energy upper rocket stage. Her work included studies to determine the life of storage batteries, such as those used in electric cars.

Cool Facts About Cassini
Cassini was launched on the 15 October 1997.
Cassini was shown us what the processes that may shaped our solar system was.
A great animation of Cassini's last chapter. After a 20-year mission it plunged itself into the Saturn's atmosphere.
How do Steam Egines Work?
The answer is a lot! Cassini orbited Saturn, studying Saturn and its icey moons in detail. Cassini captured around 450,000 images some of which you can see on NASA's website. Cassini showed us worlds ruled by raging storms with methane rivers.

Cassini made its final approach to Saturn and dove into the planet's atmosphere on 15 September 2017.
Cassini showed that Titan (one of Jupiters moons) is one of the most Earth-like planets.
