In our interview with the “rock and roll engineer,” Adam Steltzner discusses how exploration expresses our humanity and is an entirely unique trait among us all. He believes it’s a fundamental part of our humanity and is just like art and theater in that it’s a “gesture of who we are.” Take a listen to hear how a NASA engineer views humanity and what makes us the way we are!


For 10 years, Adam Steltzner led a team of engineers inventing, designing, testing and retesting the revolutionary “sky crane” landing system that successfully placed the Mars rover, Curiosity on the Martian surface in 2012. Since then, he’s been awarded honors ranging from the Smithsonian’s American Ingenuity Award in technology, to GQ magazine’s Spaceman of the Year.
