From U of T to NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab: Alumna Janis Chodas receives an honorary degree

“Juno is a go for launch.”

Janis Chodas will never forget those words – the verbal go-ahead she gave to launch the Juno spacecraft in 2011 at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

At the time, Chodas was the project manager for the Juno mission at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), which sent the Juno to Jupiter. The spacecraft, armed with nine instruments, was “designed to study how Jupiter formed and evolved, in order to understand how our solar system formed and evolved,” Chodas told U of T News recently.
