NASA Astro-nette Cady Coleman on (and at) EG Conference

“EG is a place that I feel at home and where I get to have real conversations with fascinating folks from all arenas as opposed to star-struck PR-like conversations.

Highly recommended.” — Cady Coleman, NASA Astronaut

At EG11 (2017) Cady Coleman and Yvonne Cagle discussed the film Hidden Figures and the roles, past and future, of women at NASA. Cady Coleman has flown twice on the space shuttle, lived underwater for 11 days in the Aquarius Habitat and camped in a tent for 6 weeks in Antarctica collecting meteorites. Born in West Point and raised in Novato, Yvonne Cagle earned a doctor of medicine degree from University of Washington and worked as a physician for more than a decade.

Part of the session entitled Inner Worlds, you can watch their talk here.

30 April - 2 May 2020

Our team has been working hard behind the scenes to bring you a superb program for EG2020. However, in light of growing and legitimate concerns regarding the rapid spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) which have gutted international events of all sizes, we have made the difficult decision to put EG on hiatus until it is once again deemed safe.

We know how much each of you look forward to EG and we were looking forward to seeing old friends, and welcoming many new ones, but we do need to prioritize the health and safety of our attendees, presenters, and partners, especially those traveling from afar.

We will be in touch in due course with future plans.
