Rob Manning is an experienced engineer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. He’s an expert on landing spacecraft on the surface of Mars utilizing very creative techniques like airbags (Pathfinder, Spirit and Opportunity) and the skycrane maneuver on Curiosity.
Manning recently published a book Mars Rover Curiosity: An Inside Account from Curiosity’s Chief Engineer where he details the very difficult challenges involved with designing a spacecraft that lands itself on another planet.
I really enjoyed speaking with him and I hope you enjoy the interview!
