It is a real treat to see the Mars Astronaut Dress worn in such a fitting environment! Prof. Meenakshi Wadhwa is an award-winning cosmochemist, researcher and educator that's been repeatedly recognized for her contributions to meteoritics and planetary science. Her speech on meteorites is well worth watching!

I choose science because it allows me the privilege to work with (= have fun with!) bright, amazing, inspiring colleagues & students AND together we aspire to
