Ellen Stofan, Director of the National Air and Space Museum

The daughter of a rocket scientist, Ellen Stofan was four when she saw her first rocket launch. Unlike some children, she never outgrew her childhood fascination with outer space. As an adult, she set off in her father’s footsteps and never looked back, becoming NASA’s chief scientist in 2013. Now, she heads the National Air and Space Museum where she once interned at as as a college student. Kojo speaks with Stofan on her move from the space agency to a Smithsonian museum, and her vision for the institution.
