First woman in space among those honouring Mabel Bell this summer

Baddeck, Nova Scotia

Cape Breton Post:
This year marks 110 years since the formation of the Aerial Experiment Association by Mabel Bell – the first woman in the world to fund, form and manage an aviation company.

From July to September in Lunenburg and Baddeck, the Silver Dart anniversary committee along with Canada’s first woman in space Dr. Roberta Bondar presented a series of events in several venues, for a variety of ages to help celebrate Nova Scotia’s significant achievements in the areas of history, arts, science and technology.
