Someday, I would love to be a high-school science teacher.
That these little rovers are still going strong! It really is a testament to the brilliant and talented scientists and engineers who designed, built, and operate these vehicles.
The most challenging part of my job is trying to find ways to improve our process. We are always looking for more efficient ways to operate while maintaining the quality and quantity of sequences delivered and executed by the spacecraft.
The night Opportunity landed and we saw the first images come down from the rover. We were staring right at Martian bedrock, it was so exciting!
I couldnt decide between being a heart surgeon or a teacher!
