On 18 March 2023 BBC News reported: A woman who is working at NASA has spoken of how inspired she was by the appointment of Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock as her former university's chancellor. Dr Aderin-Pocock, who presents The Sky at Night, took on the role at the University of Leicester this month. Naomi Rowe-Gurney, 32, a former student at the university, said she had been inspired by Dr Aderin-Pocock's career. 'I couldn't believe a black woman was on TV talking about space science,' she said. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of science, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.

... She said that, as a black girl who loved science, coming across Dr Aderin-Pocock presenting the BBC's The Sky At Night had been 'amazing'.

... She said she had also been inspired by friends and family members when she was growing up, including one of her aunts who had done a physics degree.

... 'That's kind of the reason why I came to NASA,' she said. 'You think of black women pioneers like in the film Hidden Figures, which is one of my favorite movies.

'I'm helping all the scientists who look at planetary systems, so not just atmospheres, but surfaces, moons, and rings.'
