The Ibirapuera Planetarium honors women in science

The Ibirapuera Planetarium honors women in science

The Ibirapuera Planetarium is holding a free activity on Saturday (11) to honor female names in science in reference to International Women’s Day celebrated on the 8th. corridor.

The session lasts 50 minutes, is free for all ages and recreates the path of researchers such as Jocelyn Bell, Valentina Tereshkova and Marcel Soares Santos. Presented on behalf of Astrophysics PhD student and Planetarium Professor Mirian Castejon Molina.

Although women throughout history have contributed to as many areas of knowledge as their male colleagues, they often, and even today, confront masculinity in institutions. As a result, many of them end up on supporting records.

Russia’s Valentina Tereshkova, for example, was the first woman to go into space, in 1963. However, as the BBC report recounts, when authorities were questioned about the sexism that marked the criteria for selecting astronauts to leave on missions, her country sent a woman another for 19 years. The argument was that space was an environment with too many risks for women.
