Meet the Incredible Woman:She is Rowing 6,000 Miles from Japan to San Francisco without any support

28-year-old Sonya Baumstein plans on being the first woman to complete an extraordinary journey. With no sail and no motor, Sonya will be rowing 6,000 nautical miles by herself from Choshi, Japan to San Francisco, California because she likes a good challenge. Using a 770-pound, 24 foot boat, this adventurous young woman will not only be taking on an incredible quest, she is also going to be working as a citizen scientist for NASA's Earth and Space Research program Aquarius. With special technology attached to her boat, the explorer will be collecting data on water temperatures, salinity levels, and currents as she rows along her path.
