The incomparable N.K. Jemisin has a book of short stories called How Long ’til Black Future Month? (Read it; it’s by Jemisin, so I don’t need to say anything else about it.) So far, no one has written How Long ’til Women’s Future Month, but the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is making some surprising and exciting strides toward (U.S.) women in space. Here is composer/violinist Lindsey Stirling celebrating the Artemis program (program information and statistics embedded in the video).
We all need some forward-looking and cheerful topics, and I have to say that watching Stirling dance to her own music, and reading the Artemis Project statistics, warms my heart. I hope it warms yours.
