About the presenter
Jordan Ticktin is a quality assurance engineer at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif. He fell in love with Alaska a year ago and has been teleworking from Anchorage ever since. He’s had the great fortune to work on the Europa Clipper Jupiter orbiter, Perseverance Mars rover, and many of JPL’s smaller higher-risk-tolerance missions, but his favorite part of the job is getting to share his passion for space exploration with others.
