Disabled People in Space, more things

The stream of the Becoming Interplanetary event at the Library of Congress is now online (with transcript!), so, for those interested, here is the link to the stream of Becoming Interplanetary.

The journalist Rose Eveleth (from the paper we read “The Hidden Burden of Exoskeletons for the Disabled”) published an article in WIRED that features quotes from David Meyers (one of the Gallaudet 11), Alice Wong (of the Disability Visibility Project; we’ll watch her MedEx talk in a few weeks), Mallory Kay Nelson (who talks about transmobility), me, and many others. It’s a well done piece. Here is the link to “It’s time to rethink who is best suited for space travel.”
