This week we're celebrating the life of the first known female Native American engineer, Mary Golda Ross. Ross joined Lockheed Aircraft Corporation during World War II. She later earned a certification in aeronautical engineering from UCLA. She then became the only woman (aside from the secretary) on the top-secret, 40-person, Skunk Works team at Lockheed. There she worked on the Agena rocket project, and on preliminary design concepts for flyby missions to Venus and Mars. The team would go on to help NASA reach space. Happy belated birthday, Mary!
