He worked with the Mars exploration group at NASA and helped NASA to select the best landing site for the 2020 Mars Rover Mission. He later joined the small bodies group at NASA and work on identifying scientific priorities and opportunities for the exploration of asteroids, comets, interplanetary dust, small satellites, and trans-Neptunian objects.
Driven to make the world a better place, Hadarou has also worked alongside other scientists and engineers on NASA’s planetary defense goal, helping to protect our blue planet from dangerous asteroids that could cause catastrophic damage to the Earth. He is currently a research scientist at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center developing a robotic spacecraft for asteroid mining. As he continues his ongoing endeavor to invent and develop innovative technologies that have never been built before, Hadarou is currently a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Maryland College Park.
Hadarou started his PhD in aerospace engineering at SUNY University of New York before transferring to mechanical engineering at the University of Maryland College Park. He holds both master’s and bachelor’s degrees in planetary sciences from SUNY University, as well as a bachelor’s in science and technologies and a master’s in geomatics from the Higher Institute for Space Studies and Telecommunications.
