Interview on ‘A Portrait of the Scientist as a Young Woman’

For a planetary scientist, Lindy Elkins-Tanton of Arizona State University has what is perhaps a particularly eclectic resume.

She has worked in business, raised sheep and border collies, and taught math, among other jobs. Today, she’s the principal investigator of NASA’s Psyche mission, a spacecraft designed to explore the asteroid of the same name, which appears to be primarily made of metal. She tells the story of all of these experiences and much more in her new memoir, “A Portrait of the Scientist as a Young Woman (opens in new tab),” (William Morrow, 2022).
