MP4 download: Space for Women: Narrated by Ricardo Montalban

Ricardo Montalban left us today so I checked around to see what of his work was floating out there online. There is a nifty three part interview with The Archive of American Television and an episode of the old Raymond Burr D.A. in a wheelchair series Ironside where Montalban guest starred .

However what really caught my eye was this doc made by NASA and narrated by Ricardo Montalban showcasing women involved in the space program. It's been upped to the net by The US National Archives and was produced in 1980.

It notes how the women obtained their training and qualified for their positions. Astronaut Anna Lee Fisher, Dr. Patricia Cowings, Shirley Cevalier, Sue Norman, Sharon Orkansky, Brenda Willis, and Astronaut Catherine Sullivan are profiled.
