My name’s Vinita Marwaha Madill and I’m an advocate for women in STEM. I’m currently based at the European Space Agency (ESA) working on future human spaceflight projects as a Space Operations Engineer. I’ve also been involved in spacesuit design for the European Space Agency (ESA) along with working as an Operations Engineer for the International Space Station at the German Aerospace Centre (DLR). Being based at Germany’s version of “Mission Control”, I guided astronauts through experiments on the ISS and was involved in astronaut training. I’m passionate about human spaceflight and exploration. My mission is to inspire women around the world and provide advice on working in the space and technology industries. Over my career I’ve worked with and gained advice from amazing women and I wanted to share this with everyone. giving these women a voice & platform.
I’m interviewing successful women from the space industry, technology, aerospace and science research. This includes astronauts, government policy makers, commercial spaceflight employees and engineers. Articles and videos from these interviews will be posted on the site to hopefully inspire you and show that you can be a rocket scientist too! I’ll also be posting interesting news and advice on working in the space and tech industries, including current events.
