Ice in the Solar System: Ice!
Solar System Explorers

Jennifer Heldmann
Dr. Heldmann is a planetary scientist who studies the ice on the Moon and on Mars. She says that what she likes about her job is being able to do something different every day.

Rachel Mastrapa
Dr. Mastrapa does experiments to determine whether ices of different compositions are mixed together or are separated on the moons of the giant planets. She suggests that students sign up for internships to get experience with hands-on research, if they think they might be interested in research science as a career.

Adrian Jon Brown
Dr. Brown is using CRISM, a spectrometer on Mars, to study some of the ice deposits on Mars. Dr. Brown is excited by how we're bringing Mars to life by just observing what is going on over there.
