Description

Speaking of Chemistry set a course for JPL to learn about NASA’s plans for cubesats, little satellites with interplanetary aspirations. Not a subscriber? Make it so: http://bit.ly/ACSReactions
↓↓Full description and references below↓↓

Andy Klesh of the Jet Propulsion Lab welcomes us to the cleanroom to talk about how satellites smaller than a briefcase could one day explore the chemistry of alien moons and planets. But first, Andy and his team have to show that cubesats can make it to other planets like NASA’s more conventional, more expensive, and much larger satellites. That’s where Mars Cube One, or MarCO, comes in. Watch to learn more
