57-Year-Old Woman Beats Every Other Astronaut By Setting This Incredible Space Record


It's no secret that there's a huge dearth of women entering STEM fields. And the ones who do face discrimination on a daily basis. It's a very tough field for them to break into and when they do there are a lot of barriers for advancement. 

But that hasn't stopped women from absolutely crushing it in their respective science, tech, engineering, and medical fields. It's always amazing to see someone climbing to the very top of their fields and represent Science at the highest level to inspire future young women to follow in their footsteps. 

Like astronaut Peggy Whitson.
