In this episode, Matt is joined by rocket scientist Ozan Varol. Ozan is a rocket scientist turned award-winning professor and author. A native of Istanbul, Turkey, Ozan grew up in a family of no English speakers. He learned English as a second language and moved to the United States by himself at 17 to attend Cornell University and major in astrophysics. While there, he served on the operations team for the 2003 Mars Exploration Rovers project that sent two rovers–Spirit and Opportunity–to Mars. He built stuff that went to the red planet and wrote code that snaps photos of the Martian surface. Fortunately, you don't have to be a rocket scientist to think like one as this episode provides you with some practical tips that you can use in your daily life.
