Webinar: Lunar Trailblazer - A Caltech-led Pioneering Small Satellite for Lunar Water and Lunar Geology

This webinar will provide information about Lunar Trailblazer - a Caltech-led pioneering small satellite missions designed to produce the best maps of water on the Moon.


Aug. 31
- Sept. 4

Workshop: Nebulae - Deep-Space Computing Clouds Part 2

We will continue to explore how to “Nebula-enable” missions, such that there is sufficient storage and computational capability for large quantities of data to be gathered, pre-processed and selected for optimal downlink to make the most of the bits that the Deep Space Network (DSN) can support.

Mars 2020 Perseverance Rover

Video Posted: Seeking Signs of Ancient Life in Jezero Crater with the Mars 2020 Perseverance Rover

This webinar provides an overview of the Mars 2020 Perseverance mission objectives, its landing site, and what we hope to learn from NASA’s next Mars mission.

Mars 2020 is seeking signs of past life in Jezero crater, the site of an ancient delta and crater lake. The Mars 2020 rover will also collect a diverse and compelling set of rock and soil samples for potential return to Earth by a future set of missions.
