Those Magnificent Women and Their Flying Machines: ISRO’s Mission To Mars The book looks at motivations and challenges of several women scientists in the organisation working on other important space missions. ‘How hard was it for these women scientists to follow their dream of a career in science, which has been considered a strictly male bastion? How many were hampered by family pressures and social conditioning positing marriage and family as their primary goals?’ are some of the questions Vaid poses to the women she interviewed for the book.
