Who can honestly say they've never dreamt about exploring space, about setting foot on other planets? I know that I can't. Being outside the protective atmosphere of our planet, a space suit the only thing separating us from space - I imagine life can't get much more exciting than that. The woman I want to write about for this year's Ada Lovelace Day makes these space explorations possible for humankind in the first place.
