When they were growing up, six women couldn’t have imagined that their lives would take them on a journey to NASA to work with the Hubble Space Telescope. From astronaut to social media lead, from scientists to engineers, these featured “Women of Hubble” overcame obstacles and persevered to achieve success and help make Hubble one of the greatest exploration machines in human history. Their inspirational stories teach us that anyone can succeed if you stay curious, never give up, and don’t let anything keep you from reaching your goals.
