An interview with Julia Rothman, a kiwi with two decades of experience designing and launching space systems for the US Government. She worked as the Missile Defence Agency’s first Space Flight Test Engineer. She helped fund the development of new weather models and an Antarctic receiver site doubling the advance warning time for Category 5 hurricanes after Hurricane Katrina. Julia has spent the last 5 years designing a system tracking space debris. She has degrees in Physics, Engieering and Business Administration.
In this interview, we are going to talk about Julia’s career from NZ to the US then back again, her experience working on defense space and understanding the challenges, benefits, and roles that space technology play for national and global security.
