This month we are reading "The Six:The Untold Story of America's frist women astronauts" by Loren Grush.

Originally, NASA excluded women from space flight. Eventually, NASA relented and opened the application process to everyone, regardless of race or gender. From a 1977 candidate pool of 8,000, six elite women were selected--Sally Ride, Judy Resnik, Anna Fisher, Kathy Sullivan, Shannon Lucid, and Rhea Seddon. Journalist Loren Grush shows these brilliant and courageous women enduring claustrophobic--and sometimes deeply sexist--media attention, undergoing rigorous survival training, and preparing for years to take multi-million-dollar payloads into orbit.
