Happy Wednesday, I hope you are all having a good week! I saw Children of the Sea today, and gorgeous but also plenty of WHAT? Welcome to a space-filled Waiting on Wednesday~
For today’s WoW I got a book that combines several things I love. Astronauts + non-fiction + graphic novel. It is a graphic novel about the first women in space! About the achievements they did, how they tried to make space something for women as well, and much more. I am so excited to read about these epic women and their stories. I want to see how far NASA is now with sending women into space.
And I am just in love with the cover, it is absolutely stunning.
Now I just got to wait until next week!
In the graphic novel Astronauts: Women on the Final Frontier, Jim Ottaviani and illustrator Maris Wicks capture the great humor and incredible drive of Mary Cleave, Valentina Tereshkova, and the first women in space.
The U.S. may have put the first man on the moon, but it was the Soviet space program that made Valentina Tereshkova the first woman in space. It took years to catch up, but soon NASA’s first female astronauts were racing past milestones of their own. The trail-blazing women of Group 9, NASA’s first mixed gender class, had the challenging task of convincing the powers that be that a woman’s place is in space, but they discovered that NASA had plenty to learn about how to make space travel possible for everyone.
