Let me say a word about what Philip Bond is doing here. I have a four year old daughter who is smart as a whip and obsessed with space. But she doesn’t want to watch dude astronaut videos. She does not want to play with dude astronaut toys.
She asked me, "Daddy, where are the lady astronauts?"
I can tell you that the toymakers of the world have NO ANSWER to this question. You cannot spend your American dollars on a lady astronaut toy. The only option out there is Space Camp Barbie (Tell me you’re joking - I ASSURE YOU I AM NOT JOKING).
So here’s the thing. Not only is this a lovely and accomplished gallery of well-illustrated images worthy of your sustained attention. Philip Bond is also engaged in a bonafied service to the children of the planet.
Lady astronauts forever…
I can’t wait to show the kiddo.
