Women Making History… In Space

The Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex is no stranger to trailblazers, and this month, it is celebrating women who are currently making history: Members of the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation will be on hand to share their work and stories so guests can see and hear what spurs them and what their contributions to the space industry are.

The center will also host female visiting astronauts, whom your clients can meet throughout the month, including veteran NASA astronauts Heidi Piper, Julie Payette, Wendy Lawrence and Susan Kilrain, during an Astronaut Encounter or Chat with an Astronaut event. During their visit, they can also wander through exhibits featuring women who have impacted the space industry, in addition to seeing the Space Shuttle Atlantis, which carried trailblazers Mary Cleave, Shannon Matilda Wells Lucid and Pamela Melroy, among others, into space.

The Algonquin celebrates Women’s History Month with a new cocktail at its iconic Blue Bar. Proceeds from each cocktail sold benefit local women’s organizations.

Since 1933, the Blue Bar has been a Times Square institution. Decorated with artwork by renowned Algonquin regular Al Hirschfeld, it pays tribute to Broadway legends who once gathered here for cocktails and conversation. The Women’s History Month cocktails allow visitors to enjoy classic drinks while supporting women’s causes.
