Dr. Moogega Cooper

On Feb. 18th, 2021, Dr. Moogega “Moo” Cooper helped make history when the Mars Perseverance Rover successfully landed on the Red Planet. Part of the famed NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) team, Moo is blazing a trail as a real life ‘Guardian of the Galaxy’ holding the awesome responsibility of keeping the Red Planet safe from Earth’s contaminants. Her work is integral to the ongoing mission to discern whether Mars could be habitable for humans and to ensure that we don’t harm what’s already there. Her presentation will include breathtaking images taken from space and she will share the leadership lessons learned from her inspirational journey to the top of her field, insights on how perseverance pays off, and how diversity makes the JPL team even greater.
