Brooke Thornton has devoted eight years to a project that aims to check on the atmospheric health of the Earth. Needless to say, when NASA's Stratospheric Aerosol and Gas Experiment III on the International Space Station (SAGE III on ISS) launches, she'll be among the many cheering and working for its success in space.
"After seeing SAGE III mature from concept, to development, to assembly and testing, and preparing for mission ops … I'm excited to see it launch so we get the science we have worked so hard for," she said.
