'Being a scientist' is such a vague concept---what field? What specialty? It's difficult to find a passion in the sciences with such generalities; scientists fall in love with their field of science, and young students are no different!
Giving students a brilliantly enlightening example of what a NASA scientist researches, this book focuses on the life of Mars Rover scientist Steve Squyres-- how he researches, what tools he uses, how he started his career, and why he's so interested in his field! This brilliant book demystifies how one becomes a scientist by focusing on all steps-from a childhood telescope to geology classes at Cornell, to the idea for a paper to graduate school to the Mars Rover project.
Learn about how the entire Mars Rover team built the rover, how they overcame obstacles, and what the project promises for space exploration. 79 pages, indexed, hardcover with dust jacket.
