The Women who Power NASA’s New Horizons Mission to Pluto

The dozens of women who are powering New Horizons to a history-making July 14 flyby of Pluto look forward to the day when the conversation about gender becomes irrelevant.

NASA’s New Horizons mission is now transmitting the best pictures of Pluto we’ve ever had – and 25% of the team behind that are women. That statistic, while practically unfathomable 50 years ago, is, according to many on the team, now only remarkable for being borderline unremarkable.

Just a little something to put a smile on your face.
