Telegraph Jobs made an impressive database of women in space. It features both astronauts, engineers and scientist. And all entries have a bit of information about the person.

If you are not on there, fear not, they encourage women active in space science or engineering to contact them to make their list more impressive.

As they say it themselves:

We would love to hear from all you women out there and would like to encourage more females to make an impact around STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics), to take the opportunity to study in these fascinating fields and to venture off into deep space.

The world, planets and space awaits you, and we look forward to hearing from you.

The Architecture Of The Future Is Far More Spectacular Than You Could Imagine

  9. 3D-Printed Interiors: The future of indoor design will be run by 3D printers. Architects Michael Hansmeyer and Benjamin Dillenburger. 
  10. Floating Pools: a giant filtration system to the murky waters between Manhattan and Brooklyn.
