‘Exploring Mars with Curiosity’ at SDSU

Posted: Thursday, Apr 4th, 2013

BROOKINGS – NASA’s Curiosity rover touched down on the surface of Mars via sky crane in August 2012 and has since been exploring the red planet’s Gale Crater, searching for any signs of life.

Curiosity’s soil sampling system was chiefly engineered by NASA’s Louise Jandura, who will be speaking at 5 p.m. Tuesday, April 9. The speech will take place in the Volstorff Ballroom in the University Student Union at South Dakota State University.

Presented by the College of Engineering, there is no admission charge for the event which is open to the public.
