ASME STS - January 15, 2014 - "Development and Operation of the Mars Rovers/Landers & Cassini Space Probe"
SPEAKER - Dr. Mark Lemmon, Texas A&M University, College Station, TX              


Dr. Lemmon has a Ph.D in Planetary Sciences from University of Arizona and a B.S. in Physics from University of Washington. He is engaged in planetary exploration as a way to understand how atmospheres work in different conditions. Exploration of the solar system uses robotic missions, astronomical observations, and laboratory and theoretical research. Dr. Lemmon's focus is on missions of exploration and the theoretical analysis of data from those missions, supplemented by the occasional astronomical observation.

He is involved in research on the atmospheres of several planets, but focuses most of his attention on Mars and Saturn's moon, Titan. He uses the Hubble Space Telescope (HST), ground-based observatories, and data from past planetary missions as inputs to a modeling effort studying the seasonal changes in startospheric and tropospheric aerosols of Titan.

Dr' Lemmon has been part of a variety of missions including the science team for Galileo Probe into Jupiter's atmsophere, the Imager for Mars Pathfinder, the (crashed) Mars Polar Lander, and the Huygens Probe to the surface of Titan. He has been a NASA selected Principal- or Co-Investigator for the Spirit and Opportunity Mars Exploration Rovers, the Phoenix Mars Lander, the Mars Science Laboratory, and Mars Trace Gas Orbiter, as well as for Hubble Space Telescope and Infrared Telescope Facility guest observing proposals.


Professional Development Hour (PDH) certificates will be available to participants at the conclusion of the event.
