Memories from 40 years ago
September 5, 2013I had the pleasure of working in the Image Processing Lab at JPL during the Mariner 10 mission. I didn't know Dr. Murray well, but attended many meetings in which he was a (usually vocal) participant -- always pushing for more and better imaging science. His dedication to the Mariner missions and subsequent efforts in planetary exploration has given all of us a real legacy. My sincere condolences to his family.
Our LightSail test mission was successfully completed and our Kickstarter campaign ended June 26th, raising $1.24 million dollars for LightSail's 2016 solar sailing mission! Miss the Kickstarter campaign, but still want to donate? You can!
