DailyDirt: Women In Spaaaaace....

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Over fifty women have flown in space so far, but that's only about 10% of the total number of people who have physically left the planet. It's not easy to become an astronaut (or cosmonaut or taikonaut...), but when humans go into space nowadays, the ratio of women-to-men is slightly better than it used to be. This year marked a couple anniversaries for female space travelers, and hopefully, there will be more manned missions in the future for everyone. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.
