From the earliest moon goddesses to today’s galactic fashions, visions of females in space have sparked the creative imagination.
The exhibition includes photographs of pioneering astronauts including Sally Ride, America’s first woman in space, Mae Jemison, America’s first African-American female astronaut, and Ellen Ochoa, America’s first Hispanic woman to go into space. There are also photographs of Dr. Ellen K. Baker, an astronaut who has logged more than 600 hours in space.
