Wearing a mod Mercury-inspired silver spacesuit and even sporting a bubble-cut hairdo reminiscent of a helmet, "Miss Astronaut" beat NASA in the representation-in-space race, giving girls an early role model in aviation and aeronautics. In 2015, Barbie celebrated female heroes who inspire girls by breaking boundaries and expanding the possibilities for women everywhere. Later, she accepted a position as engineer and worked on five missions, including the Perseverance rover now on Mars and Europa Clipper, which is set to be launched to Jupiter's moon in 2024. Under project Dreamstar, the astronauts took photos and videos of two Barbies — one Black and one white — at various ISS facilities.To enable personalised advertising (like interest-based ads), we may share your data with our marketing and advertising partners using cookies and other technologies.

Barbie is dedicated to showcasing women who are role models from all backgrounds, professions and nationalities so that girls around the world can see themselves in careers that might not always seem as accessible," said McKnight. Barbie was there to inspire girls that they can be anything as early as the 60s, during a time when it was uncommon for girls to pursue a career in STEM.

Several space-themed dolls based on real women were also released, perhaps in an attempt to show young girls that their dreams aren’t only possible in Barbieland. Wells is hopeful that this method will be tested on the Moon, but using a human astronaut rather than a life-sized Barbie model. Samantha Cristoforetti's doll continues to fuel Barbie's history with space and the brand's commitment to encourage girls to become the next generation of astronauts, engineers and space scientists.
