kinds of people work on the Genesis project. In addition to
providing information about the people of the Genesis mission,
one purpose of this site is to explain the types of careers
that go into supporting the work of any NASA mission.
This part of the Genesis outreach Web site is organized around
Outlook Handbook (OOH), a publication of the Bureau
of Labor Statistics. That publication contains information
about the variety of career options available to today's students.
The OOH career information is arranged into clusters of related
occupations. Seven of these career clusters are represented
among the people who work on the Genesis mission. They are
- Executive, Administrative and Managerial Occupations
- Administrative Support Occupations
- Service Occupations
- Professional and Technical Occupations
- Mechanics, Installers, and Repairers
- Production Occupations
- Handlers, Equipment Cleaners, Helpers, and Laborers
individual occupations are included in each cluster. From
each of the cluster names below, you can find individual occupations.
By clicking on an occupation, you will find a brief description,
a link to the full description, an archive
of interviews with Genesis team members, and access to
other aerospace career resources.
As John Hicks, the artist who designed one of the Genesis
mission patches, says, "Space exploration is driven by dreamers.
And so, even those who can't do the science can take part
in the dream."
