Astronauts are the superstars of space, but there are thousands of other women and men behind the scenes who make space exploration possible. Women of Space: Cool Careers on the Final Frontier is for girls, young women, and anyone else interested in learning about exciting careers in space exploration. You can be an accountant, a security officer, a pilot, a doctor, a biologist, a mission control worker, an outreach educator, a teacher, a science writer, or anything else. They are all needed in space exploration. You don’t have to be an astronaut to work in space. You can do anything you want! But if you want to be an astronaut, you’ve got to prove yourself first. Astronauts are not born, they start out by doing other jobs that support space. They are chosen to become astronauts because they are the best at what they do. The key is to explore your options and find out what you like to do best. You will meet over a hundred women who each explore space in a different way. Find out what these women space explorers do, challenges they’ve had to overcome, and what advice they have for you.
