Astrogeology Profiles - Jim Rice

Narration: Jim Rice


silence music My name is Dr. James Rice. I'm an astrogeologist. I work in the solar system exploration division, here at Goddard Space Flight Center. Being a field geologist, my work has allowed me to go to all 7 continents which is quite an accomplishment. When I was a little boy, I remember, for punishment once I had to write the 7 continents on the blackboard for - I was talking in class too much. Now to actually to have visted every one of those continents is kind of amazing to think about. The most exciting thing I've done at this point is being a crew member on this Desert R.A.T.S. There's a lot of opportunities here at Goddard. I'm still working on the Mars rovers here and I'm also involved in the Lunar Reconissance Orbiter. I think this is a great place to be, and I'm really happy to be here. You can do almost anything you want in this country if you really want to do it, you know? At least that's my experience.
