"I have always wanted to explore inaccessible and dangerous places. As a child, I dreamed about flying to space. I had often heard that it was a man’s trade, that one shouldn’t have daydreamed. I refused those rules, I had to become a space engineer, I built rockets, I applied to be an astronaut and I was refused. My initial anger passed, I have tried to understand why. Researching the place of women in the space race enabled deeper reflection into the limits of gender and its representations."


Debate with :

  • Silvia Casalino, director and project manager on Vega rocket's project at the CNES (Centre national d'études spatiales)
  • Françoise Bories, former head of the study programme of the path of Ariane 5
