In this week’s Space Cafè WebTalk, Claudia Kessler, Initiator, Founder, driving force of “Die Astronautin”, Bremen, Germany, talked inspiration and empowerment of woman for space.

Imagine: February, 2022: A space crew with only women astronauts docks to the Unity Node after having flown aboard a Space X Falcon 9 in the Crew Dragon Spacecraft, orbiting ever closer to rendezvous with their astronaut colleagues of the International Space Station.

It is a historic first. 4 Women 2 Space 4 Earth — Bringing with them the combined dreams, experience, insights, expertise and vision of millions of girls and women to access space, to take their place in the universe. Four Women to Space for Earth – one trip to Space, one voyage to the Universe to work together to obtain a safe, healthy mother-ship Earth.

The resulting inspiration, education, dissemination and implementation of the skills and knowledge, be it science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math (STEAM); be it contextual, conceptual, cognitive thinking; be it experimental, experiential, exponential exploration will lead to a more equitable, sustainable, peaceful universe without gender, race, geographical or digital divide.

How are we going there? These was addressed by Claudia.

This Space Cafè WebTalk, held on 1 December 2020, was hosted by Torsten Kriening, publisher of SpaceWatch.Global. 

The Space Cafè WebTalk series is SpaceWatch.Global’s innovative webinar platform featuring global space experts.
