Do you know a woman in planetary science who inspires you?

Leave us a comment, or twitter us at @womenplanetsci and let us know who she is, and why she inspires you!  We’ve prepared (an incomplete) list of women on planetary science missions over on the sidebar, over there, with links to interviews that they’ve done with everything from alumni magazines to TED to CNN.  Who else would you like to “meet?”  What would you want to learn from successful women in planetary science?
