      Yes, absolutely, but I think it’s more to do with the people I work with. The group I work with is made up of lots of different people studying different things, and they’re all really knowledgeable about their particular subject. That means I am surrounded by people who are constantly making new discoveries and then presenting their results to us, which makes it a very inspiring environment.

      Yes absolutely. I have been working in the space sector for 20years now and to see the advancements in technology that have allowed us to understand both our own world and other planets in space is amazing. I have worked with scientists and engineers who discovered the first planetary aurora on a planet other than the Earth. Being able to send and land a probe on an asteriod to understand the origins of the universe and the solar system. I have been fortunate to work with leading scientist who push our understand and make new discoveries. And now I look for ways this new information and technology can benefit other people and industries.
