Great minds inspire greatness. Our Pioneers in Science programs offer high school students a path toward greatness through rare opportunities to interact with world-renowned scientists. This year, students from around the globe got to engage with NASA chief scientist and leading planetary geologist Ellen Stofan. Stofan is one of the premier experts on the terrain of Titan, Venus, Mars, and Earth. During this intimate gathering, students asked Stofan about her career, her inspirations, and NASA’s science programs.
