Women in Space!

Only 10% of astronauts are female, and in space engineering that number seems even worse. This blog is dedicated to put the Women in Space in the spotlight to educate and inspire a new generation.

Happy Birthday to Yelena Serova (above) and Tamara Zakharova (below)! 

Both are cosmonauts. Zakharova was selected in 1980 for the astronaut team as a researcher but has never flown a mission. She retired in 1995. Yelena Serova was selected in 2006, there are rumours that she might get the opportunity to fly a mission in 2013 (replacing another cosmonaut) or 2014.
