Defying Gravity: Women in Space

Created in collaboration with Microsoft, this mixed-reality experience featured a holographic capture narrated by NASA astronaut Dr. Mae Jemison, who took visitors through women’s pivotal yet often unsung contributions to space exploration—all beneath the Enterprise shuttle in our Space Shuttle Pavilion.

The First Black Woman in Space

Visitors learned how Dr. Mae Jemison joined NASA's astronaut corps in 1987 and was selected to serve on the STS-47 mission, where she orbited the Earth for nearly eight days from September 12-20, 1992. She became the first Black woman to travel into space when she served as a mission specialist aboard the space shuttle Endeavor.
