Acting Staff Engineer for the Integration & Test Branch at NASA-Goddard Space Flight Center

Dr. Veronica Pinnick, the acting Staff Engineer for the Integration & Test Branch at NASA-Goddard Space Flight Center. Dr. Pinnick has worked at NASA for over 12 years and has been part of numerous exciting space exploration missions, from developing mass spectrometers that are used to analyze rock samples on Mars to taking part in NASA’s PACE (Plankton, Aerosol, Cloud, ocean Ecosystem) mission.

The PACE satellite was launched into Earth’s orbit on February 8th aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida. PACE was designed to advance the assessment of ocean health by measuring the distribution of phytoplankton, tiny plants, and algae that sustain the marine food web. It will also provide scientists with key atmospheric variables associated with air quality and Earth’s climate.
