San Joaquin Valley Town Hall Presents How Curiosity Changed My Life: Mars Rover by Adam Steltzner

Adam Steltzner website  - San Joaquin Valley Town Hall Presents How Curiosity Changed My Life: Mars Rover by Adam Steltzner

Event Description

Adam Steltzner, best known as the landing specialist and development manager for the Mars Rover, “Curiosity,” was an aspiring rock star when he noticed, one night, that the constellation Orion had shifted from where it was hours before. That event sparked his curiosity to know everything about the laws governing the universe. He returned to school, earning a master’s degree from the California Institute of Technology and a Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. By 35, Steltzner was an engineer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
Steltzner will detail the development and landing of Curiosity, its current findings (including photos) and its future mission on Mars. He will also discuss the power of human curiosity and the importance of fostering a culture of collaborative innovation.
