(More) Women on a Mission
Now I want to turn that around, and introduce you to some of the amazing women doing work on planetary science missions, not because they are women, but because they are incredibly impressive and leaders in the field.
I’ve recently received a grant from NASA to expand our work here on the blog, to bring graduate and undergraduate women more into the fold, and to bring your questions about scientific preparation, mission work, and career path to the real experts … practicing scientists.
Over the next 12 months, there will be opportunities to participate in discussion groups, draft questions, and review my questions before interviews with prominent planetary scientists. Graduate students will also be invited to sit in on interviews with mission leaders, project scientists, and co-investigators, both here in the Washington, D.C. area and at the Lunar and Planetary Science Conference.
Interested? Join the WPS-Mentoring email list and stay tuned … I’ll post details there by the end of the week.
