NASA in Aberdeen – Inspiring the Next Generation to Mars and Beyond

23 March, 2018


NASA Space “Discovery” and the use of Robotics in exploring
Mars and beyond.

Come along to this exciting presentation, To Mars and Beyond at Robert Gordon’s College and discover how robotics are used by NASA to explore the red planet.

This talk will be delivered by Mason Markee, Robotics Engineer for NASA who will discuss the significant role played by robotics in NASA’s future missions back to the Moon, Mars and beyond. While NASA has its sights set on the stars, many of these robotic inventions have benefits to everyday life on Earth including sideways driving electric cars, search & rescue humanoids, and close to home, inspection robots for decommissioning the North Sea’s Brent rigs.

Mason will be joined by astronaut Bob Cenker who flew on space shuttle Columbia on STS 61-C. Bob will discuss his flight experience and life in space.
