Women eXploring Space

There are cool women in every corner of space science, doing amazing jobs that further our understanding of the universe and our place in it. Check out these features of women in real STEM jobs!

The PBS series “Makers” aired an episode along these lines, too, featuring women who’ve played a role in the U.S. space program since the days of Apollo. The episode, which is excellent, is free to watch on the Makers website.
