Curiosity’s Landing on Mars & the Future of Space Exploration
MetadataShow full item record
Over the last 50 years, JPL spacecraft have visited every planet in our solar system and roved for more than 8 years on the surface of Mars. In addition, space borne telescopes have detected planets around neighboring systems, studied the composition and dynamic of galaxies across the Universe, and monitored changes in our planet’s surface and atmosphere. In this presentation, Dr. Charles Elachi will discuss the challenges of robotic space and Earth exploration, highlights of Curiosity’s recent landing on Mars, and present some of the engineering and technological challenges for future missions of exploration and discovery.
