Space Lawyer Defends Women Cosmonauts
Over on MSNBC, U.S. space lawyer Arthur Dula jumped right in, telling James Oberg, "Discrimination against women would make his organization, and any organizations whose activities it controls, possibly including the Russian Federal Space Agency, ineligible to contract with or receive funds from the U.S. government or any U.S. government contractor."
The Probe agrees. (And preseumably, the first woman in space -- and 20 years before Sally Ride -- Russia's own Valentina Tereshkova, would too.)
On a more enlightened note, the Russians announced this week they are preparing to send 50 snails to the International Space Station. Maybe even female snails?
