Solar System Ambassador Pam Roller would like to encourage you to be inspired by a short video titled, “Trailblazing Women of NASA.” This video is so fitting with the focus recently on Women’s Right to Vote and Women Equality Day being celebrated. It features women space pioneers!

From as early as 1922 to the present, these remarkable women have been NASA physicists, the first chief technical editor, the first female engineer, the first female executive at NASA, trajectory specialists, the first electronic computer specialist, the first female black mathematician supervisor, the chief of astronomy, the first American woman in space, the first American woman to walk in space, the first African American woman in space, the first female shuttle commander, the first female commander of the International Space Station, and the launch director for NASA’s Exploration Ground Systems Program who will oversee the countdown and lift off for NASA’s Artemis first flight test when we return to the moon.
