Women in space

This week (Oct 4-10) is World Space Week, a global event celebrating science and technology, and their contribution to improving the human condition. This year the theme is “Women in Space”, and thousands of participants in over 90 countries will be celebrating the accomplishments and contributions of women to the space sector and sciences.

In 2020, Morgan Irons made space exploration history when she sent the first Earth soils to the International Space Station. Listen to a podcast where she explains the importance of soil structure on Earth, why she sent soil into space, and how we might develop living soils on Mars.
