Carol Simon Levin will portray Mercury 13 “almost astronaut” Jerrie Cobb to tell the stories of overlooked women who sought to explore realms beyond the surface of Earth, in outer space and the depth of the ocean — astronomers and astronauts, human “computers” and marine scientists who have broadened our understanding of our planet and our universe.
