Orion is a class of partially reusable space capsules that will be used by NASA’s in human spaceflight programs. The spacecraft consists of a Crew Module designed by Lockheed Martin and the European Service Module manufactured by Airbus Defence and Space.
Throughout NASA’s 62 years, Women have played crucial roles in advancing space exploration; from performing calculations to sending astronauts to the moon to launching into space themselves as mission specialists and commanders.
Woman in STEM careers have always faced a lot of roadblocks, and so with companies like NASA having a clear stance and taking a stand on the same while having initiatives that promote the advancement of women in the field makes a huge difference to women and girls aspiring to work in similar careers.
