Carol Tolbert manages the Manufacturing Innovation project for the Office of the Chief Technologist at the NASA Glenn Research Center. She calls the project "game changing" because it is all about additive manufacturing, a process that turns out more lightweight products than in traditional machining. NASA could ultimately use this technology on orbit, reducing the need to transport parts and hardware to space. Broken parts could be manufactured on orbit.
Tolbert, who has worked at NASA Glenn since 1991 says she tries to inspire as many people as possible in recognition of the many people who've inspired her throughout her career.
