Of Course The Youngest Person To Go To Space Is A Black Girl
Humanity’s documented interest in space began millennia ago, with the systematic astronomical observations of the Assyro-Babylonians in 1000 BCE marking the first time humans created a system to understand the galaxy above us. It would take thousands more years before anyone actually ventured into space. Soviet pilot Yuri Gagarin made history for that in 1961, and in the years that followed, space exploration was limited to astronauts who’d spent their entire lives training for life in the sky. However, in more recent times, the accessibility of space has become a topic of conversation; slowly but surely, more people are looking to (temporarily) leave Earth to see what space is all about. On August 10, American aerospace company Virgin Galactic launched its first ever Private Astronaut Mission, making history by sending three people on a commercial flight beyond the stars - including 18-year-old Anastatia Mayers, the youngest person ever to travel space.

Female physicists aren’t represented in the media – and this lack of representation hurts the physics field
Christopher Nolan’s highly-anticipated movie “Oppenheimer,” set for release July 21, 2023, depicts J. Robert Oppenheimer and his role in the development of the atomic bomb. But while the Manhattan Project wouldn’t have been possible without the work of many accomplished female scientists, the only women seen in the movie’s trailer are either hanging laundry, crying or cheering the men on. As a physics professor who studies ways to support women in STEM – science, technology, engineering and math – fields and a film studies professor who worked as a screenwriter in Hollywood, we believe the trailer’s depiction of women reinforces stereotypes about who can succeed in science. It also represents a larger trend of women’s contributions in science going unrecognized in modern media. The Manhattan Project would not have been possible without the work of physicist Lise Meitner, who discovered nuclear fission. Meitner used Einstein’s E=MC² to calculate how much energy would be released by splitting uranium atoms, and it was that development that would prompt Einstein to sign a letter urging President Franklin Roosevelt to begin the United States’ atomic research program.

Women In Tech Share 5 Helpful Tips On Eliminating Mom Guilt
The momentum surrounding women in the workforce continues to increase despite unparalleled representation loss throughout the pandemic. Bloomberg reports that 77.5% of women between the ages of 25-54 are either working or in the employment market, which is the highest level in reported history. Black women’s workforce representation has increased 2.5% over the past year, tipping past 60%, as their unemployment rates hit a record low 4.2%. Despite the upward momentum, women in the workforce have more to battle than the typical challenges of a widening gender pay gap, mid-career plateaus, occupational segregation, caregiving disparities and the impacts of the gender-unique health woe of menopause. It’s called mom guilt. 70.6% of mothers with children under 18 are working. That's 23.5 million moms. Oftentimes the largest work hurdle for moms is mom guilt; that inner voice that constantly compares mom performance and child needs in terms of physical presence, pushing quantity over quality. Five working moms concur and share advice, tips and wise counsel on how to leave mom guilt where it belongs, behind us.
