'Rocket Girls' Launches at IWASM 

When: Mon., July 11 2011

The end of the space shuttle program seems like a fitting time to launch a retrospective on women in space, says Marcy Frumker of the International Women's Air & Space Museum. After all, prior to the shuttle program, no American woman had ever left the earth's atmosphere. The museum's new exhibition, Rocket Girls: Women Astronauts & the Space Shuttle, aims at recognizing these brave pioneers: the pilots, doctors, scientists, engineers, and military officers who went on to become space shuttle astronauts. To help tell their story, IWASM is displaying never-before-seen images from NASA's archives that help visitors "go behind the scenes" of the space program. The free exhibit is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily through November 13. For more information, call 216-623-1111 or visit iwasm.org. The museum is inside the Burke Lakefront Airport terminal building at 1501 North Marginal Rd. — Maile
