NASA's Curiosity landing- 1 of her creator's POV

Birt 14 ágú 2012
I was able to work on NASA JPL's Curiosity Mars Rover for 7 years. This video is an attempt to capture what it felt like to have 7 years of your life vindicated in the 7 minute landing. Honestly one of the coolest moments of my life so far.
All the pictures of hardware you see in the video are things that I worked on designing or testing or building. I got to work on the Sky Crane for 3-4 years then with some hardware on the Rover itself for the rest. My background in school is Mechanical Engineering.
Who won the bet? Gizmodo tells all:

  • It’s incredible that you worked on curiosity, it’s so cool. You put 7 years of your life into an incredible self driving science car driving on another celestial body. Keep up the great content.

  • What an achievement to accomplish in life. There’s lots of jokes about being a ISchatsr now versus and engineer for NASA but you’re influence to the millions of people who have watched your videos is just as important as what you accomplished this day.
