In honor of National Women in Engineering day, today we celebrate NASA engineer Rebecca Junell!

Here’s a bit about Rebecca from EngineerGirl:

“I like being able to visualize how things work, being able to get that picture in your head of how you can manipulate ideas and put them together,” she said. “It’s nice to know that something works, but it’s even more important to understand the basic ideas of how the problem behaves. It’s kind of like the satisfaction of assembling puzzle pieces.”

At NASA, Junell has had the opportunity to help test rocket engines before they launch. The team she works with makes sure the test stand and its parts can withstand the extreme heat and extreme cold of a rocket engine test. She analyzes and reviews data as the pipes, instrumentation, and structures are exposed to different environments. Junell has been working with and testing the RS-25, also known as the Space Shuttle Main Engine, to get it ready to be reused for NASA’s next vehicle.
