Profiles of Women in Planetary Science

"Planetary science, roughly, is the study of the planets, moons, comets, asteroids, atmospheres, and dust -- everything in the solar system besides the Earth and Sun. Women make up half the bodies in the solar system. Why not half the scientists?" -- Susan Niebur, astrophysicist and mom.
