NASA-JPL InSight engineer Marleen Martinez Sundgaard works in a simulated Martian sandbox. She tests science instruments meant for Mars right here on Earth. Growing up in a migrant farming family, Marleen was always dreaming of the stars - now her dream has become a reality.

Landing in November 2018, NASA's InSight will probe beneath the surface of Mars, study the planet's interior and shed light on how rocky planets - inside and outside our solar system - form.
