This week, India became the first Asian nation to reach Mars when its orbiter entered the planet’s orbit on Wednesday — and this is the picture that was seen around the world to mark this historic event. It shows a group of female scientists at the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) congratulating one another on the mission’s success. 

The picture was widely shared on Twitter where Egyptian journalist and women’s rights activist Mona El-Tahawy tweeted: “Love this pic so much. When was the last time u saw women scientists celebrate space mission?” 

In most mission room photos of historic space events or in films about space, women are rarely seen, making this photo both compelling and unique. Of course, ISRO, like many technical agencies, has far to go in terms of achieving gender balance in their workforce. As Rhitu Chatterjee of PRI’s The World observed in an op-ed, only 10 percent of ISRO’s engineers are female.

This fact, however, Chatterjee writes, is “why this new photograph of ISRO’s women scientists is invaluable. It shatters stereotypes about space research and Indian women. It forces society to acknowledge and appreciate the accomplishments of female scientists. And for little girls and young women seeing the picture, I hope it will broaden their horizons, giving them more options for what they can pursue and achieve.”

I always forget that western business attire isn’t universal, and that women wear different clothes in different parts of the world. I’m so used to scientists wearing button downs and ties that when I first saw this, I marveled at all the women wearing traditional Indian clothing. This picture is wonderful in so many ways.

Birthstone lists

From "Birthstones and the Lore of Gemstones" by Willard Heaps, 1969.

It’s not a complete list since there’s other traditions as well, but this covers most well-known ones. Also these lists go by month - the zodiac signs themselves may have different stones associated with them. But if you’re wanting to make a Crystal Gem OC, then you might find some ideas here. Unless you were born in January. If you were born in January then YOUR BIRTHSTONE IS GARNET AND NOTHING BUT GARNET.
