January 2023 - How Do Missions Get Formed?
How Do Missions Get Formed?
Time: 7 p.m. PST (10 p.m. EST; 0300 UTC)
We’ll talk to one of our robotics engineers about project formulation and demonstration, looking at the process of generating ideas - from napkin sketch to prototype to development and testing. We’ll also look at how they figure out the right questions to ask in order to understand what technologies are needed to get the job done using real life experiences and stories about the Mars Rovers and Mars Sample Return Mission.
