With March being “Women’s History Month,” NASA unveiled a new gallery of historical images featuring women. Nancy Grace Roman (1925-2018), NASA’s first chief astronomer, is known as the “Mother of Hubble.” In a time when women were discouraged from studying math and science, Roman became a research astronomer and was instrumental in taking NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope from an idea to reality and establishing NASA’s program of space-based astronomical observatories.

In this image, Roman explains the Advanced Orbiting Solar Observatory to astronaut Buzz Aldrin in 1965 in Washington, D.C.  Learn more about her career.
