Who knew that Kate Middleton's wedding dress would cause such a controversy??
During Wikipedia's Wikimania 2012 conference, a debate over female-related interests prompted a discussion over why the Wiki page for "Kate Middleton's wedding dress" is one of the lowest-rated topics in the Wikiverse and has been flagged for deletion several times.
With only 9% of Wiki editors being women
In a historic event for the Chinese, Liu Yang has been selected to join two male astronauts, Jing Haipeng and Liu Wang, as part of a three-person crew about to get their space on!
They'll be taking the Shenzhou-9 on a space docking mission.
And, Liu is crazy qualified for this, too. At 33, she was the deputy head of a flight unit of the PLA's Air Force and an air force major.
Plus, she is also a veteran pilot with 1,680 hours of flying experience and, after two years of training, excelled in testing before being selected as a candidate for the crew. So it's not like they were like, "Well, we need a woman, so you'll do."
Here's what a spokeswoman said:
"It will also further expand the social impact of human space missions and showcase the positive image of Chinese women. As a woman, I am eagerly looking forward to this flight with a female astronaut."
Congrats and good luck, Liu!
Let's hope they can pull it off — space docking is a tough maneuver!

Women's boxing will be brought to the Summer Olympics for the first time in London this summer.
The U.S. is going to have one representative: 22-year-old Marlen Esparza.
Esparza, from Houston, recently defeated Luu Thi Duyen of Vietnam to earn her ticket to the Summer Games.
Two other female U.S. boxers, Quanitta Underwood, 28, and Claressa Shields, 17, were eliminated for the qualifying tournament, the Women's World Boxing Championships, which were in China.
Though they may still make it into the Olympics if an international commission decides so.
Olympic women's boxing will feature three weight divisions: featherweight (112 pounds), lightweight (132 pounds) and middleweight (165 pounds).
We really hope she wins the gold!
You go, gurl! Punch those faces!
U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.!
