Space travel represents the future, and women and people of color are fighting to be a part of it. In this episode, Krys honors the real, groundbreaking pioneers that inspired her character: Wally Funk, an alum of the first program designed to train female astronauts; Joan Higginbotham, the third and most recent Black woman to go into space; and Dr. Leroy Chiao, the second Asian American professional astronaut to lift off of Earth. Krys also welcomes former astronaut Nicole Stott to discuss getting more women involved in the space program.
