I help land spacecraft on other planets…


Meet Carlie Zumwalt, a Flight Mechanics Engineer at NASA’s Langley Research Center. Carlie uses sophisticated computer modeling to look at everything that could happen, end-to-end, from the moment a spacecraft touches the atmosphere to the time it comes to rest on another planet. She worked on simulations for both the Mars 2020 and InSight landers. For more information about NASA’s InSight mission, visit: https://mars.nasa.gov/insight/
