Some former Disney Channel stars continued their acting careers.  Some become musicians.  Some write books and host podcasts.  Then there’s Bridgit Mendler.

You may remember her from “Good Luck Charlie” or “The Wizards of Waverly Place”.  But she’s on a new path . . . into ORBIT.  Bridgit and her husband have started a company called Northwood Space.

She says, quote, “We have our sights on building a data highway between earth and space.”

What that means is, they want to make it easier to transmit data to and from space.  And while I can’t say this with absolute certainty, I’d bet a pretty thick wad that she’s the only former Disney Channel star currently in this field.  (???)
