RADIO Frontier Channel Episode 06

“Landing On Mars” – Finding a place to land on Mars is harder than you think. In this sixth episode of RADIO Frontier Channel I’ll tell you about a class project to pick a landing spot for the 2009 Mars Science Laboratory. Sounds easier enough, until you add some engineering constraints, massive databases of Mars images, and conflicting scientific goals. Wanna try? I’ll provide online resources so you can put together your own proposals and send them in to The Frontier Channel. Other listeners can then vote for the best proposal and I’ll announce the winner in a future episode.
