Madame Mars: Women and the Quest for Worlds Beyond

Madame Mars, Women and the Quest for Worlds Beyond, is a transmedia documentary tracing the long and arduous path women have taken in their efforts to explore Mars and worlds beyond.

Madame Mars project vision is to inspire young women and girls to pursue careers and opportunities in the space sciences.

Madame Mars is creating an interactive experience with a living laboratory of women working in space exploration which will inspire participation and exploration of Mars and world beyond.

Thank you for inviting me to take part in Madame Mars, I feel privileged to have had the chance to participate in such a project. I really enjoyed working with Madame Mars team in San Francisco last November, many thanks to Jan Millsapps, Beth Rogozinski and Melissa Lamming.

It was a great day and I am looking forward to seeing the Madame Mars documentary!
