WIA-E Strasbourg invites to Movie Night followed by a Debate
Movie Night followed by a Debate
Friday, 31 January 2020
International Space University, Illkirch/Strasbourg
The Strasbourg branch of Women In Aerospace Europe organises a movie night followed by a debate.
We will watch the movie “Mercury 13”
The Mercury 13 were thirteen American women who, as part of a privately funded program, successfully underwent the same physiological screening tests as had the astronauts selected by NASA on April 9, 1959 for Project Mercury. The term was coined in 1995 by Hollywood producer James Cross as a comparison to the Mercury Seven name given to the selected male astronauts. The Mercury 13 women were not part of NASA’s astronaut program, never flew in space, and never met as a group.
Programme of the evening:
- 17h30: Movie: Mercury 13
- 19h30 : Debate
The event is open and free for members of WIA-E Strasbourg.
