Join the Center for Astrophysics | Harvard & Smithsonian for our virtual Observatory Night, as Jim Ottaviani and Maris Wicks discuss their book "ASTRONAUTS: Women on the Final Frontier."

The first person who will set foot on Mars is alive right now. We believe this, but even if we're wrong we know the first crew to arrive there will look nothing like the ones that landed on the Moon fifty years ago. Our world has changed for the better, and ASTRONAUTS tells the story of the women who built this better world. The main character and narrator is Mary Cleave, an astronaut you may not have heard of. It's not because so many people have been to space; only a few hundred have! It’s because this graphic novel isn’t about fame. No astronaut you'll ever meet took the job to get famous — it's adventure and science and wonder that drive them. Comics are ideal for bringing readers into the action, the sights, the sounds, and the feelings of discovering new worlds, and in this talk we'll tell you why!
