Women in Spaceflight from the Mercury 13 to Today | NASA JPL Solar System Ambassador @ The Venture Café Gathering (Havana) | St. Louis | Missouri | United States
Celebrate Women’s History Month! Learn about a lost-in-history rogue initiative organized by a NASA consultant, Dr. Lovelace, to see if women could be astronauts. The “Mercury 13” female pilots passed the same tests as the Mercury 7 and aspired to be astronauts. Their dreams were cut short and the first American woman in space, Dr. Sally Ride, launched 20 years later in 1983. Women in Spaceflight from the Mercury 13 to Today will uncover the famous first women in space, as well as the little known Mercury 13.
