Giving women their space


  • Michael Carlowicz


In an attempt to spark greater interest in space sciences among high school girls, the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics has been distributing a booklet entitled “Space for Women: Perspectives on Careers in Science.” The 20-page color booklet offers advice and encouragement to young women interested in space physics, astronomy, and other space-related fields. More than 10,000 copies have already been distributed to students, teachers, and career counselors.
