On Women’s Equality Day, NASA celebrates the women who are breaking barriers and paving the way for future generations.

In this image, Dr. Nancy Grace Roman (1925-2018), NASA’s first Chief of Astronomy and “the Mother of Hubble,” visits the Space Telescope Operations Control Center at the Goddard Space Flight Center on March 31, 2017, and meets with some women from the Hubble Space Telescope project.

The Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope, a mission concept to answer vital questions in both exoplanet detection and dark energy research, was renamed the Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope in her honor.

Women’s Equality Day is celebrated on Aug. 26 each year and commemorates the passage of the 19th Amendment, which granted women the constitutional right to vote in the United States in 1920. In a joint resolution of Congress in 1973, Aug. 26 was officially designated as Women’s Equality Day.

广角红外巡天望远镜是一项解决系外行星探测和暗能量研究中的关键问题的概念任务,为了纪念她,它被重新命名为南希·格蕾丝·罗曼太空望远镜

妇女平等日在每年的8月26日庆祝,以纪念美国宪法第19修正案的通过。1920年,美国宪法赋予了妇女投票权。在1973年国会的一项联合决议中,8月26日被正式指定为妇女平等日。
