NASA once held its very own beauty pageant

Illustration for article titled NASA once held its very own beauty pageant

The lovely lady in this photograph is Miss NASA 1968. Artifacting found a handful of photographs of Miss NASAs from the late 1960s and early 1970s, and NASA Deputy Administrator Lori Garver mentioned a 1968 Miss NASA pageant in her Women@NASA keynote speech this past spring. There's little information online about these pageants, however. Anyone familiar with the Miss NASA competition?
