Space Heroines

Through their curiosity, tenacity, and courage, women helped send rockets into space and solve the mysteries of planets, stars, galaxies, and beyond. This film is about the unsung figures of space science: the scientists, astronauts, and other luminaries who broke down barriers in a male-dominated discipline. Features an interview with Dr. Carolyn Huntoon, the first American woman to have served as the director of the Johnson Space Center. Narrated by Lynn Sherr, broadcast journalist and author of “Sally Ride: America‚Äôs First Woman in Space.”
