Emily Dean has worked on Opportunity since its inception, starting when she was a high school student. While working on the mission, she followed her passion in art and architecture, and still works on Opportunity to this day. We explore how her unique background affects her work and what it's like to work on Opportunity day to day (or is it sol to sol?).
Lecture 13 of Dr. Bruce Betts' 2013 online Introductory Planetary Science and Astronomy course begins with a conversation with Bill Nye about profound questions in the universe, then covers galaxies (our place in the Milky Way, types of galaxies, Hubble Deep Field), the Universe (determining distances, expansion of the universe, Big Bang theory and evolution of the universe, WMAP and Planck results, dark matter, dark energy, neutrinos), and life in the universe (Earth life requirements, astrobiology, SETI).
