MY MISSION

My aim this year is to replicate Rover Curiosity’s Mars landing, two years ago. To this end, we have an experimental rocket for use as a launcher for transporting a quadcopter, a small drone with four blades, which will be released, then stabilise before conveying something groundwards. For now it is a two year project. This year we shall test the experimental rocket and launcher – the Jericho rocket.

WHY I LIKE SPACE

It’s fascinating. It’s the unknown. There are still so many things we don’t know. And it can also answer a lot of questions, what I find fascinating is the creation of space, the Big Bang. Ultimately we are stardust. The matter that was created then is what we are now more or less.

MY ADVICE TO SPACE GIRLS

Follow your dreams. If that’s what you want to do, do it, whatever other people say! The profession isn’t closed to women. For now, there’s just a majority of men.
