Imaging Technology and Systems onboard Mars Perseverance Rover
October 2, 2020 @ 3:00 am - 4:00 am
Join us for an extraordinary story of the Mars Perseverance Rover’s imaging technology and systems. Peter Wharton, SMPTE’s VP of Membership, and his guests, Jim Bell from Arizona State University, the principal investigator for the Mastcam-Z system, and Roger Wiens from Los Alamos National Laboratory, the principal investigator for the Supercam will lead. This webcast will explore how gigantic leaps in technology bring us closer to understanding the vulnerability of our existence in Space. It will prompt us to think about how our “human envoys” and robotic exploration can inspire us to go beyond, and once again understand what it means to be at the frontier.
