She put Perseverance
 on Mars!

 
Was there ever life on Mars? When will we land a human on the Red Planet? And what does it take to send a rover to Mars to explore these possibilities? 

Bekah Sosland Siegfriedt is Nasa’s Systems Engineer and Missions Operation Engineer who worked five years to help land and now monitor the well-being of the Mars rover Perseverance—affectionately called Percy. 

“Once a rover lands on Mars, she has her own life. There’s energy pulsing through her veins and she needs to be given love. She becomes a family member.” 

As Bekah shares about Percy, 
Steve Sosland, Bekah’s dad & Vice Chancellor of Culture Development at TTHSC, joined our conversation,  sharing that early in her childhood, he and his wife Kelly recognized their daughter’s fascination with space. Together they encouraged her to purs
ue her ambition of becoming an aeronautical engineer. 

Now look where she is! 

Not only is Bekah a successful aeronautical engineer, but she also successfully worked on the movie Goodnight Oppy, (now streaming on Amazon) - Perseverance’s predecessor named Opportunity.
