Did you know that the first American woman in space was almost sent to space with 100 tampons for a week-long trip? 🚀

Our friends at the Davidson Institute of Science Education have explored the fascinating stories that are part of the long journey of women in space. From Valentina Tereshkova, the first woman in space, to the 72 women who have flown in space as of March 2023, their significant accomplishments have paved the way for more inclusive space exploration.

The space sector is changing, and there is a growing push for more inclusion across the board. As Sally Ride, America's first woman astronaut, once said, "If we want scientists and engineers in the future, we should be cultivating the girls as much as the boys." 🌌

Let's celebrate the incredible achievements of women in space and look forward to a more diverse and inclusive future in space exploration! 🌠
