Introduction Javier Delgado
Javier Delgado is the Mars Explorer teams Hydrologist and Geochemist and recalls back to moments in his childhood in which he would watch the stars consistently every evening in which he could. Staring at the stars meant that his mother had to pull him into the house for bed after a number of hours, nevertheless from these experiences early on it was clear to Javier that it was his dream to go to outer space. Javier states that the biggest challenge now facing his team is to first land on Mars, and then over time transform the barren planet into a space in which humans can live and breath as they would do on earth.
