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.
An asteroid or comet headed for Earth is the only large-scale natural disaster we can prevent. Working together to fund our Shoemaker NEO Grants for astronomers, we can help save the world.
