Emily has been involved with the Mars Exploration Rovers since she was in high school. While earning a degree in Art and Architectural History at Ithaca College, she continued to support the MER mission until she had the opportunity to take a full time operations position at Cornell.
Emily will take us through a day in the life of planning a day in the life of a rover on Mars. We will also explore how planetary exploration draws together people from diverse backgrounds to work on one of humanity's most exciting endeavors, how non-scientists and engineers can participate in space missions, and how her training in art, design, and the liberal arts impacts her role working with the cameras on Opportunity
