Stefanie Kohl is a space systems engineer designing satellites for Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd.
Growing up in Germany, she watched a lot of Star Trek which developed her love of space and was she inspired to pursue a career in space science after visiting the European Space agency site in Holland when she was at university. She works with navigation systems on space craft, seeing the space craft from concept to design all the way through to final build and launch.
This video shows just some of the tasks she gets through in a day.
