Space through the eyes of women

Dreaming about Space as the NASA Probe New Horizons is set to make a close flyby of Pluto and its five moons this week? Then the « Space Girls Space Women, Space Through the Eyes of Women » exhibition is just for you!

Organized by SIPA Press in partnership with ESA (European Space Agency), the exhibition offers a mesmerising look into three generations of women in Space. With the idea that Space conquest comes to life through international collaboration, SIPA Press had a team of female reporters around the world meet up with young girls who dream of becoming astronauts, students who are doing everything they can to achieve it, and well-established women who are at the heart of the Space travel adventure! The result of this quest being a photographic exhibition which will be travelling across Europe, and is currently in France until November 1st, as well as a multimedia app for smartphones and tablets.

One of the girls featured in the exhibition is Abigail Harrison, self-defined as a 18-year-old aspiring to be a NASA astronaut and the first astronaut to Mars. With more than 24 000 followers on Twitter, Astronaut Abby, as she is known online, is carrying out outreach efforts to inspire more kids to follow their dreams. Check out DiscovHER’s interview of Abby here.

Space Girls Space Women Exhibition will be stationed in Paris at the « Musée des Arts et Métiers ». Not in Europe? Visit the exhibition online and download the app on the App Store or get it on Google Play.
