Syracuse is Heading to Space!


Syracuse native, Le Moyne College graduate, and NASA astronaut, Jeannette Epps, is a mission specialist on NASA’s Space-X Crew 8 mission. Target launch to the International Space Station is at 11:16 p.m. EST on Saturday, March 2. Epps is expected to be in space for six months conducting various experiments. She will be the second black woman to live on the space station and the sixth black woman to fly into space.


Brave Women Week


Did you know Matilda Joslyn Gage was one of the earliest women’s rights activists in history and she lived right here in Onondaga County? Her story is one of many important stories in the region. Harriet Tubman, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Dr. Elizabeth Blackwell, and Jikonsaseh among others all fiercely blazed a trail in the Finger Lakes Region.


Brave Women FLX encourages visitors and residents to celebrate these females by exploring historic landmarks and destinations that tell their stories. For the first time, there is a dedicated weeklong celebration with themed events and specials at women-owned businesses March 3-10.
