We first heard from space engineer Tale Sundlisæter early in 2013 when she wrote to tell us that she was entering the Axe Apollo Space Academy competition, a program which would send a few hopeful astronauts into space. Although astronautics is traditionally a male-dominated field, Tale felt she had what it took to make her space dreams come true by winning the contest, and asked Anne Taintor fans to help her get enough votes.
Here at Anne Taintor, Inc., there’s nothing we like better than seeing smart women succeed and break down barriers, especially with some good humor. We posted a few appeals to our FB fans to vote for Tale – and many of them did! And wouldn’t you know it, Tale DID win the contest and this brave woman became Norway’s first astronaut. Cheers to you Tale!!
