What advice can you offer to young scientists or engineers?

I started my career as a musician. I found physics and engineering by accident. Once I became facinated with engineering, I followed my interest. That is the advice I would give. Find your interest and follow it. Great things can happen.

What are your personal goals for the future?

I would like to keep working on space exploration. I am now working on the Mars Science Laboratory rover.

What are your dreams for the future of exploration?

I look forward to in-situ exploration of Europa and Titan.
