Curiosity: An Inside Look at the Mars Rover Mission and the People Who Made It Happen

The tale of the folk who designed, equipped, introduced, landed, and at the moment are working the Mars rover Curiosity

Award-winning technological know-how author Rod Pyle presents a behind-the-scenes check out the hot area venture to Mars of Curiosity--the unmanned rover that's now delivering researchers with remarkable information regarding the purple planet. Pyle follows the staff of devoted scientists whose activity it truly is to discover new vistas on Mars. Readers also will subscribe to interest, the main complex computing device ever despatched to a different planet, on its trip of discovery. Drawing on his contacts at NASA and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the writer offers lovely insights into how this enthusiastic group of numerous contributors makes use of a progressive onboard laboratory of chemistry, geology, and physics tools to resolve the profound secrets and techniques of the crimson Planet.

Readers will meet: Robert Manning, leader engineer for each rover venture considering Pathfinder; John Grotzinger, the manager scientist of the whole challenge; Vandi Tompkins, the software program clothier who retains the rover on course; Bobak Ferdowski, famed "Mohawk Guy" from venture keep watch over; Adam Steltzner, the Elvis-like access, Descent and touchdown Lead; David Chen, leader of flight dynamics and the voice of JPL in the course of Curiosity's treacherous touchdown; and lots of others.

And in fact, Pyle describes the adventures of the interest rover itself, from touchdown in the course of the first samples, drilling, and learning a liveable prior on this planet, to achieving the last word goal: Mount Sharp, within the heart of Gale Crater.

The icosahedral particle has only ( l l l ) - h k e triangular mesh surfaces, whereas the fee particle has both ( l l l ) - l i k e and higher-energy (lOO)-like square mesh surfaces. Thus, the stabihty of the icosahedral particle can be thought of as arising from the lowering of the surface energy of the system by eliminating high energy (lOO)-like surfaces. This lowering is accomplished while introducing some elastic strain into the bulk of the particle. We know that very large samples of fee material are fee.
