Aerospace engineer Dr Anita Sengupta led the team that developed the supersonic parachute which helped land Nasa’s Curiosity rover on Mars in 2012. It’s still on the Red Planet today, and its main goal is to assess whether there is, or ever was, life on Mars. She tells 17-year-old astrophysics enthusiast Avantika, from India, how her love of space began when she watched a science-fiction show on TV.
