If you like those pictures the Curiosity rover sent back from Mars, you're thinking good thoughts about the work of Adam Steltzner.
He should be a household name--on two planets.
He led one of the critical teams that got the rover set up on Mars, a team that had to plow through many obstacles to achieve its mission.
It IS rocket science, but a whole lot more, a story Steltzner tells in his book The Right Kind of Crazy.
Dr. Steltzner recounts the tale in an interview on The Exchange.
