HAVE SPACE SUIT WILL TRAVEL: How Robert Heinlein made me into a feminist, Elon Musk into a rocket magnate, and mid-century Americans into arm-chair astronauts

Lord presents a talk about her earlier work on the rocket-building program and how it relates to some of the current issues around climate change, how politics frames science and what we can learn from history. Interact with Titans of Space in our virtual reality lab.
