Roving Mars: Spirit, Opportunity, and the Exploration of the Red Planet

Roving Mars: Spirit, Opportunity, and the Exploration of the Red Planet

Speaking Topics
  • The Mars Project: How Design & Innovation Got Us There

    In January of 2004, twin robotic explorers named Spirit and Opportunity landed on Mars. Expected to last for 90 days, the two rovers have now been exploring the Martian surface for more than six years. The development of Spirit and Opportunity required a team of more than 4,000 highly motivated engineers and scientists who overcame a host of technical challenges – challenges that were multiplied by an extraordinarily tight schedule literally driven by the alignment of the planets. Join Dr. Squyres while he tells the fascinating story of Spirit and Opportunity's initial conception through development, and the design process that led to such extraordinary performance, launch, landing, and six years of exploration on Mars.
