Nagin Cox - Mars Exploration Engineer - Mars Needs Women

June 18, 2020

When Nagin Cox was born in Bangalore, India she couldn’t have imagined she’d one day have an asteroid named after her. This space-obsessed kid grew up in Kansas City, and Kuala Lumpur.  Her experiences as a girl in a multicultural household showed her how easily we separate ourselves based on gender, race, or nationality, and inspired her to do something that brings people together. Now as a Tactical Mission Lead on the Mars Curiosity Rover, international and TedTalk speaker, Nagin loves to share the wonders of space with the world.

There are a lot of ways you can get involved with space:

JPL

The Mars Lander Program

You can follow Nagin's work on Facebook and Instagram and Twitter
