      Contributed may be too strong of a word, but for my recent UK space agency project I worked on analysis for a mission that will be sent to the International Space Station.

      No, I work on robotic spaceflight, not manned. But I have contributed to a number of planetary missions: Cluster (in orbit around the Earth), Cassini (orbited Saturn for 13 years) and JUICE (going to Jupiter in 2022).

      I helped design and build one of the experiments on the ISS at the moment, it’s getting ready to be deployed today. It’s a spacecraft to demonstrate ways to remove space junk form orbit.
