Our guest speakers discussed and showed excerpts from their transmedia documentary, Madame Mars. This production traces the long and arduous path women have taken in their efforts to explore Mars and worlds beyond. The filmmaker’s vision is to inspire young women and girls to pursue careers and opportunities in the space sciences. This presentation was of interest to those who want to establish gender equity in space exploration, those who support STEM education for girls, and those who are fascinated by recent developments that have advanced knowledge of Mars and potential habitation.
