I've been conducting interviews with colleagues in the space sciences from underrepresented groups for a few years now as part of my work with the NSSEC program. I'm so happy to share this 20 min film that explores some of the challenges that white women and people of color face in space science, and science more broadly. Meet some space scientists who are changing the social image of who does science.
