“One small step for man.” “Boldly go where no man has gone before.” These iconic gender-specific phrases don’t tell the entire story. Women have been, and continue to be, an important part of the aerospace industry, from the first woman in space, Valentina Tereshkova; to human computer Katherine Johnson who helped send humans to the Moon; to Christina Koch, one of NASA’s newest astronauts. In this episode of STEM in 30, we explore the women who are helping pave the way to Mars. We...

Balloons have a long and colorful history. After all, the first hot-air balloon passengers were a sheep, duck, and a rooster who flew from France in 1783. Since then, balloons have been a mode of transportation, a military asset, and a source of entertainment for many. Join STEM in 30 as we explore the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta and bring you the history of balloons, the science behind hot-air and gas balloons, and the pageantry of the Fiesta.

Many of the technologies used in NASCAR are the same as those used in space travel, and many of the forces that keep a plane in the air also keep a race car on the road. Join us on STEM in 30 from the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte, North Carolina and look at the crossover between these forces and technologies.
