50% of the population are women also the percentage is high for higher education. So why so few are involved in space exploration ?

Hi flashgordon1952,

We had a similar discussion here on this forum started by you on March 24th of this year:
http://www.universetoday.com/forum/index.p...wtopic=6888&hl= (http://www.universetoday.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=6888&hl=)

Were you unsatisfied with the answers, and think some new answers could have appeared since then?

Here (http://pages.prodigy.net/pxkb94ars/Astro_Female_1.htm) is a site that mentions all female astronauts all the way up to March 30, 2005. I count 47 astronauts with 111 flights between them. That's not bad considering that they weren't allowed in space until the mid-1980's (with the exception of Valentina Tereshkova).

It was just a research paper for English. Nothing fancy, but it got me a 98%.
