Dr Maggie Aderin leads a team launching an instrument into space to read wind patterns, in order to help assess the impact of climate change.
She leads the project after working on a variety of other scientific ventures, including radar-based landmine detectors, airborne missile warning systems and building instruments for a powerful telescope.
Measuring the Earth's wind patterns with this project will help to form a more complete picture about climate change, but Maggie is convinced that we all need to do our bit to reduce our impact on the planet.
