When Sinead O'Sullivan from Armagh Northern Ireland was 15, she won the golden ticket; a chance go to NASA's space camp. It changed her life. It made the impossible seem possible. Now she is an aerospace engineer and has worked with NASA, the European Space Agency and is CEO of Fusion Space Technologies. Her company uses satellite data to help countries deal with natural disasters and she also does work on technology to minimize the effects of climate change.
