Science and engineering in space projects
Science presenter Rani Price meets Abbie Hutty, a young structural engineer, who describes her job and some of the space projects she has worked on. Abbie talks about her role in the construction of a satellite called BepiColombo, and her latest project working on the Mars rover.
As a structural engineer, she evaluates the technological components of the rover. She also describes the programing that allows the rover to solve complex problems and make its own decisions. Abbie then describes how her science education led her to a career in engineering.
