Dr. James R. Irons: "The two best aspects of coming to work for 35 years at GSFC have been the opportunity to work on research and projects of societal consequence and the opportunity to work with and around an amazing array of colleagues. The handwork, dedication, and skill of the GSFC workforce have inspired me to try my best to contribute to important efforts. I found my most gratifying niche as a part of the Landsat program. I will attempt to share my experience and observations working across GSFC Directorates to play a role in a couple of successful Landsat missions."
