Rachel Tillman

Rachel describes herself literally as a daughter of Viking – her father was the last Program Manager of NASA’s Viking Missions to Mars. She now devotes herself to preserving the history of these very first missions to land on the red planet.

Science and technology is as much a part of our cultural fabric as art, music, theatre and literature. They play a significant role in our daily lives, yet, in a world dependent on science, we often take them for granted. Australia’s Science Channel believes every citizen has a right, and a responsibility, to be informed, and our mission is to create programs to bring that about.
