When astronaut Neil Armstrong made his “giant leap for mankind,” he did so through the collaborative work of brilliant scientists and researchers, including many women. Women in Space tells the captivating tale of space exploration and features the industry’s brightest female scientists whose work helps NASA prepare for future space exploration.

From deep-sea research to deploying advanced telescopes to inventing the BioSuit, the exhibition showcases how women’s contributions have expanded our capabilities in space exploration. Once an improbable goal, women-led space exploration is leaping forward with science innovations and engineering technology. What’s next?
