The Space Shuttle program opened up space to more people than ever before — including NASA's first women astronauts. Join us for a discussion about the incredible women who flew to space on board NASA's reusable spaceplane. We'll be joined by historian Dr. Amy Foster of the University of Central Florida and Smithsonian curator Dr. Emily Margolis. Be sure to check out the latest episode of STEM in 30 first, The Space Shuttle at 40, to prepare.

You can tune in to the webcast on this page or watch on Facebook Live on the STEM in 30 Facebook page.
