“When the next car-sized rover lands on Mars in 2020, the ultimate head of this extraterrestrial endeavor will be physicist Lori Glaze. She’s leads NASA’s Planetary Science Division. ⠀

And she’s not alone. For the first time in history, three of NASA’s four science divisions are now run by women, a milestone announced by @nasa on Friday. ⠀
‘I am proud to say that for the 1st time in #NASA’s history, women are in charge of 3 out of 4 #NASAScience divisions. They are inspiring the next generation of women to become leaders in space exploration as we move forward to put the 1st woman on the Moon,’ NASA’s associate administrator Thomas Zurbuchen tweeted Friday.⠀

If NASA is able to fulfill President Trump’s ambitious (and still not funded) directive that the U.S. return to the moon by 2024, NASA has committed that the first women will land on the moon.⠀

What’s more, of the latest class of 12 astronauts, almost half, five, are women. Still, a woman has never led the entire space agency, as NASA’s administrator.⠀

What are these three women in charge of? Read on.” #WomenInSTEM #GirlsInSTEM #STEMGems #GiveGirlsRoleModels
