Moonwalk | The Women Of Mission Control


During the Apollo Era, mission control was almost completely exclusive to men.
The first female engineer in mission control, Poppy Northcutt, recalls open sexism upon her arrival in the 1960s. In this video, she returns to Johnson Space Center for another first: She meets a female leader in mission control.

"Moonwalk" is a series that brings people together for engaging conversations about the Apollo missions and their journeys in space exploration.
