Video Title:
The Women Paving the Way to Mars - STEM in 30
Description:
“One small step for man.” “Boldly go where no man has gone before.” These iconic gender-specific phrases don’t tell the entire story. Women have been, and continue to be, an important part of the aerospace industry, from the first woman in space, Valentina Tereshkova; to human computer Katherine Johnson who helped send humans to the Moon; to Christina Koch, one of NASA’s newest astronauts. In this episode of STEM in 30, we explore the women who are helping pave the way to Mars. We are joined by "Astronaut Abby," a college student who has set her sights on becoming an astronaut and the first person to step on the planet Mars. She’s also the founder of themarsgeneration.org, a nonprofit dedicated to exciting young people about STEM education and space. Learn More: airandspace.si.edu/STEMIn30
