Who Else Wants to Hire the Best IT Specialists Available?

Can anyone argue that are modern world is moving forward at warp speed? Every day, there seem to be major improvements introduced around the world in various technologies. Automobiles have certainly become far more complex in the last two decades, mostly thanks to the electronics that control the engine, as well as the additional consumer friendly-features such as DVD players, docking ports for iPods or iPhones, navigation systems etc. Airplanes have also become far more sophisticated, with engine designed to maximise fuel-efficiency, and overall designs that maximise lift while also providing creature comforts for the passengers. In just about any type of industry, computers are helping to either design new products or control robots that create them, and they even monitor the entire process from design to final shipment to a client.

Taking a Robotic Geologist to Mars

As Mars rover Curiosity makes its final approach to the Red Planet, two UA geoscientists are getting ready to help solve some of the mysteries of its geologic past.

On Aug. 5, at about 10:30 p.m., an already busy summer will kick into overdrive for University of Arizona geosciences professor Bob Downs and one of his graduate students, Shaunna Morrison. At that time – provided everything goes as planned – Curiosity, the most sophisticated exploration vehicle ever sent to another planet, will parachute toward the Martian surface faster than the speed of sound after a nine-month journey through space. And as soon as it sinks its six wheels into the red dust, the two scientists specializing in mineralogy will have not one, but two planets to deal with.

As “primary data downlink leaders” designated by NASA, Downs and Morrison are part of a team of scientists tasked with the identification of rocks that Curiosity will encounter during its two-year expedition across the floor of Gale Crater near the Martian equator. (more…)
