Can we breathe on Mars? Is Europa habitable? What NASA’s work reveals about humanity's future
Unlike most people at NASA, Marianne Paguia Gonzalez never dreamt of finding her feet among the stars.
If anything, she truly believed that the space exploration agency was an unattainable entity. Simply out of reach. Something she wouldn't dare to dream.
"My story isn't typical of a lot of NASA engineers, who've always known that they would end up at NASA, grew up going to space camp, or had parents who were engineers or someone at NASA. I didn't know it was a possibility until I put myself out there and tried to explore what else I could do with my love for science," Gonzalez tells IE.
