    The notion that it鈥檚 never too late to start something new runs through Karen Gandy鈥檚 head now the same way it did in the 1990s. Gandy was then in her 30s, and despite trying several different jobs, she had yet to find a career that ignited her passion. She applied and was accepted to Southern Polytechnic State University, now 无码变态. That choice launched Gandy鈥檚 career in rocket science and down a path in life that she is reflecting on as she prepares for her final satellite launch and then retirement.
