On March 20, 2009 Professor Gombosi delivered his inaugural Gerstacker lecture entitled "It Takes a Village: The Making of a Space Scientist." This lecture was aimed at non-scientists and it focused on the importance of mentoring in science and engineering.
The lecture used Professor Gombosi's personal experience as a case study for effective mentoring.
