This piece is part of an art portfolio highlighting the intersections of femininity and STEM. It is titled “Ops” after the wife of Saturn in Roman mythology. (Why Saturn? In tribute to the color scheme and the ring of stars around her helmet. Why Ops? To highlight the lesser-known women of space and of mythology; and because her name can be read as a pun on “operations.”)
