Deep Space Exploration, Earth-Like Planet Discoveries, & The Search for Life – Tracy Drain
Tracy is a Flight Systems Engineer working at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Over her 20-year career, she has helped to develop, test and operate a variety of robotic spacecraft to explore our Solar System. A life-long learner herself, she loves encouraging people of all ages to nurture their curiosity and explore the wonders that are all around us every day.
Update – Tracy asked me to include this quick correction to the podcast: you can see the lines and darkened areas on Europa clipper in natural color images, not just the false color ones that have enhanced contrast. To see example images side by side, click this link for an image from NASA’s Galileo Gallery.
