Making space for women: Gender, diversity, and outer space

Elise writes: "Ensuring that our technological progress does not outpace our social values sets a major and important precedent in space. Whilst so much is still uncertain as to the direction and depth of human endeavours in space, we do know that inequalities tend to be systemic, institutionalized, and built up incrementally."
