Target Audience:General Audience
There are lessons in defeat. This month's show will discuss several notable failures in the course of JPL's history of exploration and the incredibly valuable lessons learned from them. Did you know the loss of a Mars spacecraft led to a new system that lets us never lose contact during critical maneuvers? Or that a failed spacecraft antenna helped make better mobile phones? Space is hard. Join us to hear how JPL turns setbacks into motivation.
Thursday, Nov. 12 at 7 p.m. PST (10 p.m. EST). A recording will be made available after the live stream.
