I am privileged to have known Dr Padma Yanamandra-Fisher from the Space Science Institute for some years now. We have worked together on ProAm projects relating to Comets and look forward to collaborating more in the future. In this the first of a series of Women in Astronomy today videos I interview this amazing lady on the hows and whys she got into astronomy and how a young girl from India ended up working at JPL.
