Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock is a Nigerian-British space scientist and science communicator. She's worked in academia and industry, and she's on BBC Two right now, talking about the origins of space exploration in "In Orbit: How Satellites Rule...". Catch it on iPlayer if you're not watching it now!

I love her enthusiasm.

Also I love the speaking-with-child-in-sling photo. I have already fantasized about doing this at some point, assuming new-child is suitably co-operative. "Look everyone, having a child doesn't mean you lose your brain or your skills."

I wonder if she ever gets the impulse to pronounce her job as 'SPAAAAAAACE SCIENTIST!'

Probably not.
