“When you’re watching a launch, you’re looking at this incredible achievement of humanity and completely overwhelming visually, audibly, and then you think, ‘There are people up there that I just talked to just days before!’.”-Rachel Barry from Casual Space Podcast
“I’ve learned from NASA coming from an outside perspective, having the advantage of NOT working at NASA for 20+ years- and I can approach things in a way most everyday folks would, so it’s helped me be a good communicator.” –Rachel
“You can’t be what you can’t see’ is a shortened version of a longer quote from Sally Ride. It’s important for me to share that there are so many brilliant women at NASA, on station, and supporting station, and that there’s a place for women here at NASA. I’m excited to see what the future looks like for space exploration and how we have evolved to better reflect what our society is, and how we can all be represented.” – Rachel
