Hailing frequencies open! Woman in Motion (2019) tells the inspiring story of Nichelle Nichols, recipient of NASA's Public Service Award and portrayer of Lt. Uhura, Communications Officer for the glorious starship Enterprise (2019 + 2.5 centuries). Movie Nation's Roger Moore says that this compelling documentary "underscores Nichols' undeniable contribution to broadening NASA's horizons and drumming up interest in STEM education among minority students all over America." Moore also describes the film as "warm, sentimental, and delightful ... transcending its natural 'Star Trek' fan appeal." Alongside the movie, in a livestream video that starts at 8pm PST, we'll enjoy the insights of another woman in motion: planetary scientist Erin Redwing will describe her own "search for new (solar system) life" through research at the University of California.
Erin Redwing is a 4th-year PhD student in Earth and Planetary Science at UC Berkeley. She has done research at Keck and Lick observatories, and has aided exploration at NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab and Goddard Space Flight Center. Erin is also a Wonderfest Science Envoy.
