When I finished my B.Sc in Astrophysics 🚀early I spent 6 months working as a skiing/snowboarding instructor🎿⛷🏂! So now if my PhD doesn't get me a job at least I have a backup plan 😅. What is your backup job? ❄️
That's one small step for women, one giant leap for womankind 🚀 #Repost@nasajohnson with @get_repost
NASA's first female astronauts. Selected 40 years ago today.
Kathryn Sullivan, Shannon W. Lucid, Anna L. Fischer, Judith Resnik, Sally K. Ride and M. Rhea Seddon
When those first six women joined the astronaut corps in 1978, they made up nearly 10 percent of the active astronaut corps. In the 40 years since that selection, NASA has selected its first astronaut candidate class with EQUAL numbers of women and men, and women now comprise 34 percent of the active astronauts at NASA. #squadgoals 🔥
Today in the U.S. we are celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. Day and the incredible work he did for the civil rights movement. This day is to reflect on how far we have come and how far we still have to go to reach equality. 🏳️🌈According to @nsfgov, out of the 8.6M STEM workers 49% are white men, 18% are white women, 3% are black men, 2% are black women, 4% are Hispanic men, and 2% are Hispanic women. My dream is that every person regardless of race/gender/ethnicity and sexual orientation will have equal opportunities to pursue their dreams, what is your dream? 👩🏾🔧👩🏼💻👨🏼🏫👩🏿🎓👨🏻✈️👩🏻🔬👩🏼🏭👨🏾⚖️👩🏾🚀👷🏻♀️“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” -MLK Jr
In honor of all the amazing women standing in solidarity ❤️ at the @goldenglobes I want to voice my support for all the silence breakers🙌🏼. Time's up for silence, time's up for waiting, time's up for tolerating discrimination, harassment and abuse. Who else is hoping 2018 will be the best year for equality?! 🏳️🌈 #whywewearblack#metoo#timesup@timesupnow
Hey guys! I'm giving you a sneak peak 👀of my #takeover for @universetoday ⭐️on Wednesday! One way that I study galaxy formation ✨and evolution🔭 is through state-of-the-art hydrodynamic cosmological 💫galaxy formation simulations 🔮like this one done by The Illustris Collaboration. By numerically modeling the Universe from the time of the Big Bang 💥to the present day Astrophysicists study the abundance, temperature, distribution, and physical nature of the halo gas☁️, which is the key in understanding the chemical evolution ⚛️of galaxies and their formation histories.
