We are honoured to share in the excitement, wonder, pride and contributions of pioneering Women in Sea and Space. We learn how we got there, and how we will get there again, hearing directly from the Tektite Program Manager and the original all-women Aquanaut crew - referred to by the media as the "Aquababes" - sharing personal reflections and untold stories, quirky facts, lessons learned and current missions, advancing ocean knowledge, culture, and equality for all.
Welcome to Tektite2020 a mix of live presentations and performances free online here 17-18 July 2020. This event was initiated and hosted by Dr Sarah Jane Pell and co-pilot Dr. Tierney Thys and enthusiastically welcomed by the Tektite II Team. Web content includes reflection and reporting on the 50th Anniversary of Mission 6, and presentations by leading Sea and Space professionals on the most recent exploration, achievements and pressing issues today. Outcomes will help set the vision for the next 50-years commencing with a 10-day all-women undersea mission at Aquarius Reef Base in 2021. Attendees share in the celebrations, share in knowledge, new perspectives and tools to transform the ocean world for a better future!
