Join us on the eve of the next landing on Mars with a very special lecture by Rob Manning, the Chief Engineer of JPL. 50% of all attempted landings on Mars have failed - come learn how the Mars2020 landing is trying to beat the odds!
This workshop will primarily be focused on exploring and identifying the best instrument to answer science questions, weighing technical challenges with potential scientific payout in the process.
This workshop will conceive the mission architecture to access the Martian surface (entry-descent-landing; EDL) and conduct efficient operations of multiple Mars assets.
The goal of this workshop is to identify the feasibility issues and possible solutions for an outer
solar system exploration that requires no use of nuclear power sources.
