Mars 2020: The Legacy Continues for NASA Space Robotics


Scheduled for launch in the summer of 2020, the latest NASA rover will continue the legacy of its predecessors – Sojourner, Spirit, Opportunity, and Curiosity – by taking the next step in space robotics. With innovative instruments, new science goals, and improved technologies, the Mars 2020 rover will help prepare for future human exploration of Mars. This 60-minute Webinar from the editors of Tech Briefs Media focuses on the design of the robotic system and other important systems for testing, motion, power, and sample extraction.

An audience Q&A follows the technical webinar.
