Sex and Space: The New Frontier

It’s important to consider Human Factors to tailor care well. -- Saralyn Mark, MD

As the United States plans for a trip to Mars, a conference, Women and Mars, was held at George Washington University to begin the discussion of the role that women are playing and will take as the nation prepares for this monumental voyage and throughout its exploration.
         Of particular interest is the 'Getting to Mars' panel which includes a presention by Saralyn Mark, MD, president of SolaMed Solutions, who speaks to the sex and gender differences that must be considered in preparing the astronauts for travel, particularly for such an extended travel with exposure to radiation and antigravity. Dr. Mark was the first Senior Medical Advisor to the Office on Women’s Health at the Department of Health and Human Services and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Her presentation incorporates findings that appear in a book chapter, "Cosmic Cosmetology".

  1. Is it true that because of certain stereotypes, not enough women reached the top levels of planetary science? If one the subject will be one of the famous women in business, will it guarantee their coming back?
