NASA's Curiosity Rover Team Today Features Women - NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory: Did you know that women fill 72 of the 102 operational roles at NASA that support the Curiosity rover while it roams the surface of Mars?
NASA’s Curiosity rover has celebrated a successful year on Mars (687 Earth days) - and as part of the celebrations NASA held Women’s Curiosity Day for the team running the rover.
"I see this as a chance to illustrate to girls and young women that there’s not just a place for them in technical fields, but a wide range of jobs and disciplines that are part of the team needed for a project as exciting as a rover on Mars," said Colette Lohr, an engineer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California.
